The Excellence Program

Every year the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music grants scholarships to excellent students in all years of study and all study departments*. This is in order to enable those students to dedicate all their time and effort to the development of their artistic abilities.

The scholarships are granted according to the following criteria:

1. Outstanding artistic achievements in the major subject (instrumental, vocal,
    conducting or composition);

2. Active participation in the symphony orchestra, the different chamber and vocal
    ensembles, and the chamber choir;

3. General academic standing and grade average;

4. Contribution to the school's activities;

5. Financial hardship.

During the academic year, the secretariat will distribute application forms for scholarships. Upon the full and accurate completion of the forms, the students are requested to submit them to the school office by the due date. Forms submitted after the advertised deadline will not be accepted. A special scholarships committee, chaired by the head of the school, will discuss the applications. The scholarships will be given after the end of the academic year.

"Special Status" students are eligible for support from the school. The procedure for submitting the applications are identical to those of regular students.
