Requirements and purposes

All students who are registered for a course in educational programmes at KMH can apply for scholarships. This also applies to students who do part of their education at a foreign university through exchange programs. If you study at KMH through an exchange from another university, you are not entitled to apply for the scholarships.

You must have fulfilled your obligations to KMH. This means, among other things, that you must not be suspended from the library or Support Services. Applications from students who do not meet this requirement will be sorted out. The department and the students who have applied for a scholarship are informed that the application has been sorted out.

The scholarships should

  • promote the education of young music students.
  • be granted for for further education, participation in courses and studies abroad as well as for the purchase of instruments and music sheets.
  • enable higher music studies after completing KMH education. Therefore, students in the final year are preferably rewarded.

Assessment and decision

The local KMA scholarships are given to students who carry out their studies in a meritorious manner. This means that great demands are placed on your skill and how you participate in and participate in all parts of the education. In the assessment, great emphasis is placed on how a possible scholarship contributes to your further development. The assessment takes into account whether you have previously received a scholarship through KMH.

The teachers at the department you study at participate in the assessment of scholarship applications. The Vice-Chancellor makes the final decision on who get the scholarships. Proposals are given by the Head of academy.
