Five ESAMA students receive John and Helen Meyer Scholarships

Five students of ESAMA (Superior School for AudioVisual Media) in Andalusia, Spain, have been awarded the John and Helen Meyer Scholarship.

The scholarship program was announced in 2007 by Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc., in conjunction with Meyer Sound España, S.A. and ESAMA, to recognize the academic excellence of five first-year students. This year’s awards were presented to David Carrasco Santos, Manuel Lazaro-Carrasco Sierra, Jose Carlos Martinez Salas, Antonio Ramos Garcia and Alonso Velasco Tavora during the graduation ceremonies held at the Hotel Silken Al-Andalus. They each received a grant of 1,000 euros toward tuition for the following semester.

“The award is a great motivation,” says award-winning student David Carrasco Santos. “We’re grateful to Meyer Sound not only for the money, but for the recognition.”

Meyer Sound’s ever-expanding education program now brings more than 100 seminars to 29 countries a year, covering topics that include line array technology, the use of acoustical prediction, sound system design, mixing, audio show control system programming, and source independent measurement.
“Meyer Sound has supported audio education in Spain for years with its seminars,” says Nacho Sánchez of ESAMA. “Now, by establishing this scholarship, it has taken that proactive approach to the next level. We are most grateful not only for the scholarship itself, but that there is a manufacturer so dedicated to the betterment of the audio industry."

Established in 2002, ESAMA offers a two-year curriculum emphasizing studies in audio, video and multimedia disciplines. ESAMA has an excellent record of placing a high percentage of graduates into professional positions with leading companies such as Fluge, Radio Television Andalusia, and Isla Mágica.

“We're very excited to be involved with a school as respected as ESAMA,” says Helen Meyer, vice president of Meyer Sound. “These students are the future of our industry, and by supporting their education we can foster greater competency in a new generation of sound technicians.”
