Every year, the SAMRO Foundation  offers two highly sought-after Scholarships for overseas study in music – one in the field of Western Art Music (what is generally referred to as “classical” music) and the other in Jazz  Music. The Scholarships – each to the value of R 170 000 – are awarded to the winners of an extended competition spread over three rounds, as adjudicated by a panel of music experts.  Rotating every four years among keyboard players, instrumentalists, composers and singers, the competition turns its focus to singers in 2015.   

It is extremely important that applicants comply fully with the requirements set out in the Regulations, to ensure that their applications qualify for acceptance. The cover page with the Contents can also be used as an interactive page to the document.  

Deadline for applications: 15 May 2015. To download regulations and the application form, click here
