NADJ Scholarship 2016
The NADJ Scholarship 2015 Programme from the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ)
The National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) once again has put together a unique opportunity for one of our Full Members to take part in a wide selection of educational and training opportunities.  This package will draw upon the resources of well-known and respected industry representatives, give access to a comprehensive DJ conference, gain VIP access to an industry event and we hope it will open up a world of opportunities.
  Through the NADJ Scholarship one of our DJs will have access to a wealth of knowledge, experience, information and training that has never been put in one place before.
  There is now a wide selection of opportunities for DJs to develop their business or hone their skills as a DJ, so the Association has put some of those training elements into one place.  We are again funding this unique scheme that is sure to have a positive impact for one lucky individual.
  Alan Marshall, Chairman of the NADJ is delighted to continue with this successful programme, "The NADJ Scholarship will once again open up new opportunities for one of our Full Members and it shows our continued commitment to invest in our members, who are more than just numbers to us.  The Scholarship encompasses many areas where a DJ can improve their performance and their business skills.
  "In order for any project like the NADJ Scholarship to be a success, there needs to be a desire to for the Scholar to want to investigate the way they currently operate and seek the guidance of others to improve the way they carry out their duties.
  "I'm proud to once again bring on-board a wide selection of supporters to join with the Association in this new venture.  There's a good chance that DJs across the country will already respect and follow our Scholarship partners because of what they have personally achieved," said Alan.
  We've covered as many training areas as possible and these include (select the orange link at the start of each bullet point for more information):
  • Pro Mobile Conference Full Delegate: Access to the Pro Mobile Conference 2016 to soak up all the advice, networking, personal development, performance improvements and business guidance in one weekend of great educational content.
  • DJ Mentor 365: You will get a full year of tuition and mentoring from Derek Pengelly who is a respected figure in the DJ sector and who was instrumental in the formation of the National Association of Disc Jockeys.
  • DJ Dynamics (Level 1): A recognised qualification from the London College Of Music (part of the University of West London and in conjunction with Mastermix).  This Level 1 course in 'The Fundamentals of Mixing' is a unique resource for any DJ who wants to learn about the techniques and processors that underpin DJ mixing.
  • BPM 2016 VIP Access: You will gain entry to BPM 2016, the biggest DJ event in Europe, as a VIP!  The lucky candidate will be given a golden ticket to BPM and they will have elevated privileges that will give them access to parts of the event that are only open to a select group.
  • NADJ Membership: In order for you to continue to receive all the current and future fantastic benefits of membership, knowledge, experience and guidance that our team makes available to our members, we are including a one year extension to your existing Full Membership subscription period.
  • Wedding Marketing For DJs by Derek Pengelly:  It doesn’t matter if you're just starting out, or are already a veteran DJ, this book will help you to improve your performance as well as your DJ business. After all, 'It’s not WHAT you do, but HOW you do it which gets results!'
  • Hosting For DJs by Josh Yawn: Are you a stereotypical 'cheesy DJ' or a professional party host? This book explains why changing your branding from a DJ and MC to a host and re-programming your performance mind-set from the ground level up, can open up your range of work and take your business to new heights.
  • Increase Your Mobile DJ Business By 30% by Bob Popyk: This book contains many suggestions and ideas for increasing your Mobile DJ business right away. You will find advice on finding new customers, effectively following up leads, building repeat business and much more. 
Once again a fantastic package of training and educational opportunities is on offer and we are proud that this collection forms the NADJ Scholarship.  It will allow a DJ to assess their current performances and skill levels, understand where they are in the market, get to grips with where they may need to improve and how they go about refining their DJ business.
Launch date will be Monday the 7th September.
  All applications will be independently assessed by Mark Walsh (BPM organiser) and Eddie Short (Editor of Pro Mobile Magazine) and the NADJ Scholarship Application Form can be found in the 'Members' drop-down menu at the top of the page - you will need to be a Full Member and logged into our website.  The NADJ (or any of our representatives) will have no part to play in the selection of the candidate who is chosen to take up the NADJ Scholarship.  The closing date for all applications is Mid-day Monday the 16th of November.
  Before filling in the application form, we would advise all applicants to copy the questions and work on their answers.  When you have compiled the responses in a word processor or other text editor (remember to check your spelling, grammar and punctuation), please return to the form and copy and paste your replies in the appropriate sections.  You may want to make a few notes and then compile your answers in a clear and concise manner.
  When you've compiled your first draft, please take a break and then return to what you have formulated.  There may be something important that you've missed out and this will give you an opportunity to revise your text.
  Finally, if you have someone who could proof read your entry, ask them to check it over for you and make sure you are within the 300 words limit (2,200 characters) for the three questions.  Third party feedback can often be a vital research tool and they may suggest some improvements or changes that will help you put your case across.
  We realise that applying to the NADJ Scholarship may not take just a few minutes to complete, but that's a vital part of the process to find the most appropriate candidate, who the judges feel, will take full advantage of this great opportunity.  The applicant must show that they have an understanding of their current performance levels and their business skills, in order for them to take things to another level.  When a business person thinks closely about their operation, they often realise that there are opportunities out there to improve their abilities and that's what the assessors will be looking for.
  Now for the boring bit - as with all competitions, prize draws or opportunities like the NADJ Scholarship, there are some important Terms & Conditions that all applicants must understand and agree to: NADJ Scholarship Terms & Conditions
