What is being offered?
Awards of £350 are being made to help meet the cost of instrumental or vocal tuition during the academic year.  Successful candidates will either be assigned tutors by the Director of Music or can choose tutors in consultation with the Director of Music. Music Scholars will have free access to the Music Rooms at all available times and have priority booking.  Music Scholars will be listed as such in all relevant printed programmes.  

What conditions are attached to the Music Scholarship?
Whilst receiving this scholarship, recipients are expected to make a major contribution to the musical life of Queen Mary.  Scholarships will generally be awarded to students whose musical interests and talents can support Queen Mary’s commitment to music making within public engagement.

At the end of the academic year, each Music Scholars’ instrumental or vocal tutor will be asked to provide a short report demonstrating the scholar’s commitment and progress.  Upon satisfactory receipt of the report, and subject to academic progression, scholarships will be extended for another year.

Music Scholars must successfully progress to the next academic year of their course, repeat years cannot be included in Music Scholarship provision.  Should a Music Scholar withdraw from their course; no further payments will be made.
