Undergraduate Study


Are you an organist, a singer/chorister or instrumentalist of a very high standard? If you’d like to combine specialist musical experience with a Cambridge degree, you should consider applying for one of our Music Awards.

Choral Awards and Organ Scholarships

Student organists and choristers form a very important strand of the rich musical life in Cambridge, providing music for regular chapel services. They also perform in College concerts and some undertake tours in the UK or abroad. The awards vary from College to College but all include a small financial award and some support for music lessons.

Instrumental Awards Scheme

The Instrumental Awards Scheme enables gifted musicians to reach a high standard of performance in chamber music. Successful students are Award-holders for a year, and receive a small financial award (an ‘exhibition’), professional coaching of their ensemble, masterclasses, recital opportunities and a subsidy for instrumental lessons.
