Scholarships

In 2022 we are making some major changes to our scholarships.

There will be further changes to scholarships for 2023. Watch this space!

In 2022, we are reducing the number of scholarships to five, each worth $250.00 towards fees for 2023

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of an audition.

Auditions will be held in a supportive, low key environment to ensure that students are able to perform to the best of their ability.  Every attempt will be made to ensure that the audition process is an enjoyable experience.

Rules

Scholarships are only available to current CSM students,

Students can only apply for one scholarship.

Ages are from 1 October 2022.

Students must be available to audition on Saturday 5 November and the five successful scholarship winners will perform in a concert in early 2023.

In 2022 entries for scholarship close on Friday 28 October. No late applications can be accepted

Auditions will be held in the CSM offices at 60 Ferry Rd on Saturday 5 November between 1.30pm and 4pm
