Financial aid is available for small amounts as well as a few number of full scholarships.
In order to apply for a scholarship, you must write a letter explaining your need and attach it to your application. In your letter, please tell us how much financial aid you are applying for. Also include other ways in which you plan to fundraise (concerts, gofundme, local scholarships, etc).
We award scholarships based on artistic abilities, financial need and casting needs for our operas. Therefore, popular roles are not likely to be awarded with scholarships. Our scholarships are available for all applicants, however, we especially would like tenors, baritones, and basses to apply.
You can apply for multiple roles, but you will only be selected for one.
