Scholarships and Awards

We have two schemes providing financial support for talented musicians:

Music Scholarships are open to new UEA undergraduates. You will need to apply and audition for the scholarship in the spring before you come to UEA. You can hold a Music Scholarship for three years and it is worth £1000 per year.

Music Centre Awards are open to all UEA students. The application deadline and recorded audition deadline is in week 3 of the first semester and interviews take place in week 5. Awards are made for one year and you can re-apply each year you are a UEA student. They are worth £800 per year.

The interview and audition criteria are the same for both schemes. You can only hold an award under one of the schemes at a time.
