Thanks to our donors, we are able to offer over € 150,000 in scholarships to successful applicants to go towards their tuition. See below for scholarship application information.

€ 2950: Studio Program Tuition

€ 4950: Festival Singer Tuition

€ 5550: Festival Singer Tuition plus Transportation Package

Transportation Package: BOA provides a monthly transit card, city boat tour, and airport transfer to and from your accommodation.

Festival singers are those who have been cast in a BOA OpernFest production. Studio singers are those who have been offered a place in either the BOA Studio for Professional Training or the BOA Studio for Vocal Development.

All singers are required to submit a non-refundable deposit of 950€ to hold their place at BOA. This deposit will be deducted from the singer’s final tuition fee.

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS

To apply for a scholarship, please prepare a brief letter of request to upload in the appropriate section of your application. Financial assistance is available in a range of sums, starting at 200€ and going up to a limited number of full-tuition scholarships. Please specify exactly the amounts of scholarship for which you are applying.

In your letter, please include other sources of financial support, such as crowd-funding, fundraising concerts, fundraising dinners, completed applications for local scholarships, and other means of support.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of artistic merit and financial need, as well as casting requirements for each opera. Oversubscribed roles are unlikely to attract successful scholarship applications. Undersubscribed roles are more likely to be successful. We have scholarships available for all genders, ages and roles and particularly encourage male singers of merit to apply.
