The Jazz Leaders Fellowship

Now in its fourth year, the Jazz Leaders Fellowship provides Black women and Black non-binary jazz musicians with resources to further develop their craft and pursue projects that advance their careers.

The Mission of the Jazz Leaders Fellowship is to

  • support emerging jazz musicians in creating original music.
  • support the careers of Black women and Black non-binary jazz musicians to help increase their representation in the field
  • broaden the presence of BKCM in the jazz community
  • expose BKCM’s students to diverse emerging teachers

The program was conceived by BKCM Board member Daniel DiPietro and developed by the Jazz Leaders Fellowship Committee, led by musician and educator Fay Victor (learn more about the committee below). 

The fellowship is made possible by the generous support of DiPietro and his wife Alexis and includes a $12,500 award. Additionally, BKCM will empower and aid recipients in their paths toward music leadership through teaching and performance opportunities, access to BKCM’s rehearsal spaces, participation in BKCM’s Jazz Program advisory panel and more.
