Scholarships and Prizes 2005:
JOAN CONWAY SCHOLARSHIPS IN PERFORMANCE STUDIES
Applications are invited for the Joan Conway Scholarships from undergraduate and postgraduate students of music at Oxford wishing to undertake advanced studies in the musical performance, historical performance practice or the study of musical instruments.
The scholarships, normally up to a maximum of £750, are intended to cover specific costs incurred by students for special performance tuition fees (excluding basic tuition), registration in advanced courses or master classes, travel expenses or any other costs directly related to the study and research of musical performance.
Applications must be submitted by 1 March, and should include: the applicant's curriculum vitae; a detailed plan of expenditure and details of other funds applied for; and full vacation contact details in the event that the applicant may be contacted after the end of that term.
Applications should be sent to the Faculty Administrator and Board Secretary, Faculty of Music, St Aldate's, Oxford OX1 1DB. The Board reserves the right to audition applicants.
Successful candidates are required to provide receipts and a brief written report on their use of the funds. Successful candidates may also be required to participate in a public concert in Oxford. Expenses incurred by the participation in this concert will be met from the Fund, but no performing fee will be payable.
