The Conservatory offers scholarships to music students based on talent, potential, and how the student can contribute to ensembles. Scholarships are awarded after auditions for music majors.
The availability of ensemble scholarships varies by the ensemble. Acceptance into an ensemble is based on an audition at the beginning of the semester, and this audition also determines a scholarship.
Students will normally have completed at least one year of private study of their instrument/voice at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Conservatory of Music and will be between the ages of 12 and 18. Exceptions may be considered at the discretion of the Director of the Conservatory.
Conservatory faculty have an important role in recommending students for Conservatory scholarships, based on their professional judgment, choosing the most appropriate criteria for their students. Relevant criteria could include, but are not limited to:
The Annamaria Saritelli-DiPanni Bel Canto Vocal Scholarship was created in 1988 by soprano Annamaria Saritelli-DiPanni to award scholarships to young American opera singers between the ages of 21 and 36 who are actively seeking a career in operatic performance. More than $15,000 in scholarships are awarded each year.
The James A. Hyter Vocal Music Scholarship Fund is intended for applicants who are pursuing a career in vocal music. Applicants will be invited to a vocal audition. Those chosen to audition must be prepared to perform three musical selections. Scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,000. Applicants must have a current GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, live in the Memphis metropolitan area, be enrolled, or intend to enroll, in a two-year or four-year program at an institution accredited, possess vocal talent accompanied by a love for music, submit the application form and the required annexes.
Clarinda’s Glenn Miller Birthplace Society offers vocal scholarships of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000. These scholarships, which are awarded without regard to any other award, can be used for any education-related expenses. The purpose of this contest is not to select Glenn Miller impersonators or sound impersonators, nor is it limited to the performance of pop music. Rather, in honoring Glenn, we wish to seek out and assist promising young talent in any field of applied music who may be the musical leaders of tomorrow.
To be considered, applicants must audition in London during the main audition period (November-December). All other criteria listed above must also be met. There is no possibility of reconsideration for a scholarship in future years.
UK applicants to the BMus program will receive an email in November inviting them to apply for consideration for these scholarships. If there are more applicants than available for scholarships, scholarships will be awarded based on merit and audition performance.
Since Home bachelor students can take out a full loan from the Student Loans Company for tuition fees, they can choose to deduct the scholarship from their tuition fees or use it for their living expenses.
Holders of a tuition scholarship will normally have the value of their scholarship deducted from their tuition fees. However, they can also choose to have the scholarship paid to them to use for their living expenses.
The Henry Wood Accommodation Trust scholarships help students of any nationality who are having difficulty paying for accommodation in London. Scholarships are for one year only and can be for any amount up to £1,000.
