Inclusive Excellence in Music Scholarship
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 award one Inclusive Excellence in Music Scholarship per year to incoming students in the Graduate Conducting Program.
This scholarship will cover the up to the full cost of tuition 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.
