Special Chairman Scholarship
Like many industries around the world, the education sector has faced huge disruption. Austria has a growing international education sector with more than 60,000 international students currently studying in tertiary education (Study In Austria).
Due to the restrictions in carrying out global searches for top-quality musicians and scholars, the Chairman of AMADEUS Vienna has decided to provide local students with the opportunity to have a first-class international education.
To facilitate this, the school is offering two full scholarships (including International Baccalaureate academic tuition and music tuition in the AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy) to day-students entering into Grade 10 or 11 (15-17 years). The scholarship does not include boarding accommodation. As a Patron of the Arts and a dedicated musician, the Chairman award these scholarships to one student who plays a high level of the violin and one student who plays a high level of the Cello. Moreover, the two students must have exceptional academic credentials.
If the scholars are TOP-level musicians, they will receive personal instruction by professional musicians and music scholars: Professor Gerhard Schulz (violin) and Professor Lilia Schulz-Bayrova (cello). Both are members of our Music and Art Academy Advisory Board. Likewise, they will possibly have the opportunity to play on instruments from the Goh Family Collection if their talent is at the right level.
AMADEUS Vienna has a history of success in supporting gifted musicians and academics to find places in leading conservatories and universities worldwide.
The application must be submitted by 25 May 2020 and must include:
- The Special Chairman Scholarship Application Form
- Letter of Motivation
- Two 3 minute YouTube clips of you playing the Violin or the Cello
- Last two reports
- Recommendation letter from former school leadership
Shortlisted applications will receive a Scholarship Testing Appointment (25-29 May) at which we will conduct English Language and aptitude testing. Shortlisted applicants will also audition with our Board Appointed Director of the AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy and selected Professors.
Please note that we reserve the right not to offer a scholarship if a suitable candidate cannot be identified.
