Application for Scholarship

Scholarship Schemes

Every year, the Fund invites application for its scholarship schemes to enable candidates of outstanding calibre to pursue:

  • post-graduate studies (including taught or research programmes) in music or dance at local degree-awarding tertiary institutions; or
  • professional training in music or dance at world-renowned institutions or to undertake less formal studies, projects or creative work outside Hong Kong.

Scope of Scholarships

The scope of the Fund's two scholarship schemes has minor difference

The scope of the scholarships is not confined to "performer training programmes", i.e. instrumental music or dance studies. Applicants may apply for non-performing studies directly related to music or dance performance, such as composition, choreography, musicology, arts criticism, music or dance education (applicable for the Scholarship Scheme (Local Studies) only) and performance-based research relating to music and dance.

Starting from 2018/19, the scholarship scheme (non-local studies) no longer support programmes relating to arts administration, music or dance therapy, and music or dance education. For the scholarship scheme (local studies), arts administration, and music or dance therapy will continuously not be accepted.
