How we award scholarships

This is a competitive process and not all applications will be successful.  

There are 3 stages to the shortlisting process:  

  1. we check that you meet the eligibility criteria
  2. we review your postgraduate and scholarship applications
  3. a scholarship panel of music staff will make the selection of the scholarship recipients

The decision of the scholarship panel is final. 

The quality of your application and the contribution you hope to make to the Department community will be considered when assessing applications.

Financial need will be considered but will not be the determining factor in decision-making. We need to have detailed information to ensure that the process is fair and equitable to all. We will consider only basic essential needs rather than non-essential lifestyle expenditure. If you want your financial circumstances to be considered, provide supporting documentation, such as evidence of incomings and outgoings, to your application form.
