Scholarships and Prizes 2006:
JOAN CONWAY SCHOLARSHIPS IN PERFORMANCE STUDIESApplications 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 (instrumentalists and singers are encouraged to apply), registration in advanced courses or masterclasses, travel expenses or any other costs directly related to the study and research of musical performance.
Applications should be submitted by 9 February 2007 and should include: the applicant's curriculum vitae; a plan of expenditure and details of other funds applied for; full vacation contact details in the event that they may be contacted after the end of that term.
Applications should be sent to Ms Aloïse Murphy, Events Officer, 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 for the Board. In the following academic year Conway Scholars may also be required to participate in the annual Conway Recital, a public concert in Oxford, held during Hilary Term 2008. Expenses incurred by the participation in this concert will be met from the Fund, but no performing fee will be payable.
