The Kyle Pavone Foundation, named after former We Came As Romans vocalist Kyle Pavone who passed away in 2018, is seeking to ease the burder on musicians during the COVID-19 pandemic. The foundation worked with the Battle Creek Community Foundation to establish the Kyle Cares Scholarship, which aims to provide up to $2,000 to each musician applicant until scholarship funds are exhausted.

"In honor of our son Kyle Pavone, we wanted to do something that would help musicians during this time of great need," said Vince and Caroline Pavone, parents of Kyle Pavone.

"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."

The Kyle Cares Scholarship is available to musicians who have suffered hardship due to COVID-19 and are in need of financial assistance to help with mental or physical health, substance abuse treatment, nutrition or food deficits, or housing.

"Since Kyle's passing, we've always said that the opposite of addiction is connection," the Pavones said. "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."
