Scholarships and awards

There are two ways in which University of St Andrews matriculated students can obtain help with vocal and instrumental tuition costs through the Music Centre: scholarships and the Hebdomadar's Music Fund.

In most cases, awards are made at the beginning of the academic year following competitive auditions at the start of the semester. They are open to any current student at the University, with the exception of vocal scholarships which are not open to first-year students.

Choral and organ scholarships are sometimes also awarded prior to the start of the academic year.

No student will be awarded more than one scholarship in any one discipline (i.e. singing, or one particular instrument).

Scholarships are awarded afresh each academic year (with the exception of St Salvator’s Chapel Choir scholarships). If you have already auditioned unsuccessfully in a previous year, you are welcome to audition again this year. Last year’s scholars are required to audition again, and are not automatically awarded another scholarship.

All scholarship recipients are required to join the Music Centre.
