Are you passionate about music and looking for a chance to enhance your skills while pursuing higher education? The University of Bristol is offering the prestigious Monica Wills Chapel Organ Scholarship for the year 2023, providing a wonderful opportunity for both current and prospective students to showcase their musical talents. This scholarship is not limited to music students; individuals from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
The Monica Wills Chapel, a cherished place of worship on campus since 1930, serves as a hub for Christian students, particularly those residing in Stoke Bishop Halls of Residence. The scholarship program is managed by the Head of Residential Life and the Chapel Committee, with valuable input from the University’s Christian chaplains and a dedicated Chaplain from a nearby church or theological training college.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a current student at the University of Bristol or have received an offer to study there and have chosen Bristol as your first preference. The scholarship is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Remarkable talent is the key criterion, making it an excellent opportunity for students with a profound interest in music, regardless of their major.
Application Process and Auditions:
The application deadline for the Monica Wills Chapel Organ Scholarship usually falls on the first Friday of Teaching Block 1. An essential part of the application process is the audition, which will be arranged by the Director of Chapel Music. Successful candidates will be notified of their appointment shortly after the auditions. In the event that no suitable candidate is selected in the initial round, the opportunity will remain open for further applications.
This scholarship offers partial funding of £750, which can significantly aid students in pursuing their musical aspirations and academic pursuits.
