The Kyle Pavone Foundation Launches COVID-19 Relief Scholarship For Struggling Musicians


Following his 2018 passing from an accidental overdose, the family of We Came As Romans vocalist Kyle Pavone launched the The Kyle Pavone Foundation to raise awareness and provide education to those suffering from addiction.

Now comes word that the foundation has teamed with the Battle Creek Community Foundation to implement the Kyle Cares Scholarship, which seeks to help musicians ‘who have encountered a hardship due to COVID-19 and are in need of financial assistance to help with mental/physical health, substance abuse treatment, nutrition/food deficits, or housing.’

Up to $2,000 will be granted to applicants until funds for the scholarship are depleted. Pavone‘s parents, Vince and Caroline commented:

“In honor of our son Kyle Pavone, we wanted to do something that would help musicians during this time of great need. Even under normal circumstances, the life of a musician can be a lot to handle, and the current situation we’re living in only amplifies that struggle. We thought the best thing we could do, what Kyle would want us to do, is to help musicians who are facing difficult times because of circumstances that are beyond their control.”

“Since Kyle‘s passing, we’ve always said that the opposite of addiction is connection. If we can help even just one musician get through these tough times, stay connected to loved ones and help them continue to pursue their dreams, then we’ve done something Kyle would be proud of.”
