Bursaries are awarded up to £200 (only if attending the course as a full-week resident) with a small number of non-resident bursaries available. Please note the deadline for all bursaries is Friday 4th May 2018.
We’re committed to supporting those applicants who are in need of it most. Please submit your bursary request with your Application form with a covering letter explaining your circumstances. Please apply early if you will need assistance with the fees with applications particularly welcome from tenors or basses interested in participating in Opera Scenes. The Hope Scott Trust also awards funds to applicants who are Scottish by birth, or live permanently in Scotland and may be able to help towards costs of attending Oxenfoord International. Visit their website to find out more.
Hester Dickson Duo Prize
In 2018 we invite applicants for the Hester Dickson Duo Prize, in memory of Malcolm’s mother and founding staff pianist on the course. The prize will cover full fees for a singer and pianist to continue developing their special ensemble relationship and the majority of course fees will be covered, leaving just £100 per recipient to pay.
