Update: No scholarships will be awarded in 2021 for the 2022 year. The CSM Support Trust has, instead, decided to contribute the funds used for scholarships to support families affected by Covid 19.
Each year the CSM offers a number of scholarships in conjunction with the Christchurch School of Music Support Trust.
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.
However due to Covid-19 restrictions and the need to reschedule many events within CSM we have decided not to award scholarships in 2021 for the 2022 year. Scholarships will return at the end of 2022 for the 2023 year.
Scholarships are only available to current CSM students except for the Music Education Canterbury Scholarship and the John and Janet Emeleus scholarship
Students awarded a Scholarship in one year are not eligible to apply for scholarships in the following year.
Students must be available to audition on the selected date and all successful scholarship winners are expected to perform in the Scholarship Concert held in November
Scholarships may not be awarded if no suitable candidates apply.
