Awards & Bursaries
The College has a number of scholarships and awards which have been instituted as a result of the generosity of private individuals. These awards are listed in the accompanying fact sheet. Applications for an award should be made on the downloadable application form.
The College receives many applications from students for financial help with the cost of tuition, sheet music/music books, and other expenses. We are glad to be able to help whenever we can, but it should be emphasised that the awards are intended to support a student in serious organ study, and in particular study devoted to the attainment of the College's diplomas. Applicants should normally be members or student members of the College.
The College is always ready to receive further benefactions for this purpose. Gifts, either from the living or by legacy, may be used to augment existing endowments or, where sufficient, to institute new awards. Information about making such benefactions may be obtained from the College's General Manager.
The next deadline for applications is 19 April 2014. Members wishing to apply for assistance to attend the RCO's Easter Course in April 2014 should apply by 8 February 2014.
