Speaking about the announcement, Fontaines D.C. member Conor Deegan commented "We're honoured to have a scholarship in our name. Our time in BIMM gave us time to figure out who we wanted to be as a band. We were given guidance on how to achieve our dreams. We're looking forward to being able to help someone else succeed in their time there with this scholarship."
BIMM Institute Dublin College Principal, Alan Cullivan added "Everyone at BIMM Dublin is thrilled to be launching this scholarship with Fontaines D.C., having watched their career grow with great excitement both before and since they completed their studies. At BIMM, we are driven by a commitment to helping Ireland's next generation of music talent achieve their creative goals and realise their ambitions as artists... to be able to offer that in collaboration with our former students is a bonus."
