(Classic Rock) The first ever Freddie Mercury scholarship has been launched. The Academy Of Contemporary Music revealed the new scheme - which is endorsed by the organization's patrons, Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor.

It'll fully fund a student's three-year university course and is worth up to 27,000. Taylor says: "Freddie's name endures in so many ways, so it's therefore great to have this scholarship celebrating his musical genius."

The ACM has a partnership with Metropolis Studios - one of the world's largest independent recording facilities - and students are permitted unlimited access. It was there in 1991 that Mercury recorded Innuendo, which would be his last album with Queen. Read more here.
