Of the exceptionally talented young musicians accepted every year to Bard's five-year, double-degree program, many would be unable to attend without the financial assistance provided by the Conservatory's Scholarship Fund.
- Please consider a contribution of any amount to help us build the Scholarship Fund.
- Support one student for one year ($10,000) with a scholarship in your name. Bard will assign a student to hold your named scholarship.
- Support one student for one semester with a scholarship in your name.
- Support the living expenses of an exchange student from a foreign conservatory (this year the BCCM is hosting students from Budapest's Liszt Academy).
- Permanently endowed named scholarships can be established with a gift of $200,000 that can be pledged over a five-year period. Bard will assign a student to hold your permanently endowed named scholarship.
All categories of named scholarships can be designated in your honor, or in honor of a loved one, and will receive prominent recognition in Conservatory concert programs and other Bard publications.
Other ways you can help the young musicians of the Bard College Conservatory of Music:
- Underwrite the master class series ($5,000) in the Graduate Program in Vocal Arts, directed by Dawn Upshaw. (Last year's artists included James Conlon, Ken Noda, Peter Sellars, Lucy Shelton, and Phyllis Curtin).
- Underwrite master classes (each at $1,000) by great pianists, violinists, and cellists.
- Support travel ($1,000) for students who are selected to compete in national and international competitions.
