The University of California (Irvine) and The Drake Gives have established an annual scholarship program to support students who want to infuse music in their future professional paths in some manner. These scholarships are awarded to those with a financial need regardless of whether they intend to have careers specifically in the music industry. The power of music extends beyond entertainment; it can be harnessed in various professional realms, including medicine, social services, marketing, and sports. The Drake Gives initiative, committed to supporting deserving candidates, has pledged an annual fund of $100,000 for these scholarships.

Meet the scholars

The Drake Gives is proud to honor the inaugural Glasser Scholars at UC Irvine with a $100,000 pledge from Alec Glasser, the Founder of The Drake Gives. Nine exceptional students were selected for their remarkable drive and passion for integrating music into their lives and careers. These talented individuals showcase a diverse array of skills, from theatrical performances and jazz playing to advancing their knowledge in music for video game design. We are thrilled to support their endeavors and committed to guiding them in deepening their relationship with music.
