AUSTA PRE-FORMED GROUP SCHOLARSHIP
What is it?
Students applying to WAYACHAMP as a pre-formed group have the chance to win the AUSTA Pre-formed Group Scholarship which entitles each member (up to four members) to have 100% of their application fees reimbursed.
The Scholarship was created to encourage more students to join with their friends, to both enhance their WAYACHAMP experience and encourage the students to continue playing together after the Program finishes.
Who can apply?
Any student who is eligible for the WAYACHAMP Program, ie. Violin/Viola/Cello Grade 2+ or Piano Grade 6+ and aged 10 - 17 can apply. They must apply with an ensemble of between 2 and 4 players of any combination of the above instruments, and will play with this ensemble during WAYACHAMP.
How to apply?
Students will apply and pay individually online here, and will nominate the names of their group members in the appropriate place on the form. Applications must be received by the early bird closing date of July 24.
The group will then be required to make a 2 minute recording of themselves playing together and submit this together with their individually recorded excerpts by August 21.
After this date, the most outstanding recording will be determined and this group will be awarded the scholarship for 2020. Reimbursements of fees will then be made.
With thanks to the Australian Strings Association (WA Chapter) for making this scholarship possible.
