Thanks to our donors, we are able to offer over € 300,000 in scholarships to successful applicants to go towards their tuition. See below for scholarship application information.

€ 2950: Studio Program Tuition

€ 5450: Festival Singer Tuition

Note: Festival singers are those who have been cast in a BOA OpernFest production. Studio singers are those who have been offered a place in the BOA Studio Professional Training.

Singers submit a non-refundable tuition installment of 950€ to confirm their offer. This installment is 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.
