Andrea Bocelli Foundation-Community Jameel Scholarship

The Andrea Bocelli Foundation-Community Jameel Scholarship provides opportunities to talented music students from around the world to study full-time at the Royal College of Music (RCM) in London, one of the world’s greatest conservatoires.

Established in 2019 by Community Jameel and the Andrea Bocelli Foundation (ABF), the scholarship is primarily for vocal students and is awarded every year on merit at audition and need. 

Andrea Bocelli, the renowned tenor, founded the ABF in 2011 to empower people and communities and help them overcome barriers in order to reach their full potential. Many of the foundation’s core values are shared by Community Jameel. In February 2019, on stage at the Winter in Tantora festival in AlUla, Saudi Arabia, Bocelli explained how Mohammed Jameel, Community Jameel’s founder, had inspired him to pursue philanthropy and found the ABF.

The Bocelli-Jameel Scholarship reflects Community Jameel’s commitment to promoting learning in the arts, including through Art Jameel, and to improving access to education for young people in need.
