The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

Application for grants - the Solti Foundation

6 February 2014

The Solti Foundation invites applications for grants to help young musicians and singers at the start of their professional careers.

The Solti Foundation's aim is to assist the transition period after graduating from a music school. The small grants are not intended to replace awards and bursaries from larger institutions, they are to be used for projects such as coaching, travel to competitions and auditions, short periods of study, the hire of rehearsal facilities. A team of volunteers also provides pastoral care and career advice.

Annual closing date: 28 February

You can apply online at the Foundation's website.
