Announcing The Creation Of Bard Conservatory's Inclusive Excellence in Music Scholarships
Bard Conservatory is committed to fostering musical and academic excellence in students coming from populations historically underrepresented in the classical music field. Bard Conservatory is pleased to announce the creation of up to 5 Inclusive Excellence in Music Scholarships for incoming first years in the Undergraduate Double Degree Program, 1 for incoming first years the Graduate Vocal Arts Program, and 1 for incoming first years in the Graduate Conducting Program.
These scholarships will cover up to the full cost of tuition, room and board at Bard College for the entirety of the student's academic program, and all students applying from populations that have been historically underrepresented in classical music will automatically be considered for this scholarship. In addition to financial support, our Inclusive Excellence in Music scholars will also receive support from Conservatory peer and faculty mentors in bi-weekly meetings, as well as full access to the resources of Bard College's Office of Equity and Inclusion. These services include group advising, the Learning Commons, and leadership development.
