We are thrilled to bring back two exciting scholarship opportunities after a successful inaugural year: the Global Perspectives Scholarship for international students and the New Voices Scholarship for domestic applicants! These scholarships are applicable to either our Full-Time or Evening Conservatory programs, for matriculation in the fall of 2022.
Both will offer five $3,000 tuition scholarships for each year a student is enrolled in either of our fall 2022 conservatories. Designed with the full YOU in mind, this is a unique opportunity to put your most creative personal self forward. In this physically distant and digitally connected world, we've all had to find fresh ways to tell our individual stories. We want to hear yours.
In addition to our general application materials, we want to understand what makes you "you!"
