When you are a registered student at KMH, you have the opportunity to apply for a number of scholarships. Some are handled directly by KMH, others via other organizations, such as the Royal Academy of Music, KMA.

The main goal is to contribute to continued development and training, by making it possible for the student to obtain further training, training abroad, purchase of instruments etc. Those activities provided externally outside of KMH should be prioritized, such as studies abroad and experiences not provided by KMH. Scholarships are mainly awarded to last year students.

The scholarships cover the full programme tuition cost for one student, and can be awarded to about three students per academic year.

All eligible students will receive an invitation to apply for the scholarship after the second notification of selection results, usually published in the middle of May.

The applicants then have to present us with a one-page CV and a motivational letter, before around 1 June. KMH staff will make an overall assessment of all complete and eligible applications, and nominate candidates to the Vice-Chancellor. The Vice-Chancellor then makes the final decision.
