Scholarships at Canterbury Christ Church University
|Scholarship Name||Choral Scholarships|
|Scholarship amount||up to £1000|
|Scholarship Deadline||9 October 2018|
Choral Scholarships are worth £800 per annum and Organ/Conducting scholarships are worth £1,000 per annum.
Scholarship holders may be reading any subject. Applications are welcome from current undergraduate and postgraduate students. Scholarships are held for up to three years, with annual review.
Each year Christ Church offers at least four Choral Scholarships: one on each voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass; note that countertenors and contraltos are equally welcome) and one Organ/Conducting scholarship.
Each October we offer:
Scholars’ stipends are paid in four annual instalments (at the end of each academic term and following September graduations), in arrears. Deductions will be made for services and other obligatory events that have been missed without good reason.
It is preferred, but not essential, for potential Choral Scholars to have had relevant experience in a church choir. For all Scholars, good sight-reading skills are essential.
Choral and Organ/Conducting Scholarships are awarded by audition at the start of each academic year. They are held for up to three years, with an annual review (re-audition) in the spring.
Scholars are appointed at the start of Michaelmas Term, usually in early October. Duties commence immediately upon appointment and end the following year, with the September graduation ceremonies. Scholars will be appointed using the audition procedures below.
