The Choral Scholarships are offered by individual colleges of the University of Cambridge to students belonging to a Cambridge chapel choir. In all Colleges, Choral Award-holders receive a small financial award each year, currently £100. In most Colleges, Choral Award-holders also receive a subsidy towards singing lessons. Other forms of support, such as subsidised meals and choir tours, are determined by the individual Colleges.
These scholarships are open to students attending the University of Cambridge. Candidates are required to pass an audition, as well as sight and ear tests. Choral Award-holders are required to sing in the choir of their College chapel, attending regular rehearsals and services. Most Colleges also expect Choral Award-holders to play an active role in College music-making in general. The responsibilities of Choral Award-holders vary greatly from College to College and are outlined on the relevant College websites (a list of links to individual College choir websites can be found below).
