Choral and organ scholarships

Gonville & Caius College Choir is a mixed choir of 24 male and female voices. It is one of the UK’s leading collegiate choirs, with an international reputation for performances of exceptional quality but also for innovative and adventurous recordings. It tours regularly in the UK and across the world.

Members of Caius Choir all hold a choral scholarship. This is an official appointment made by the College, and brings with it a small financial award plus free singing lessons and funding for travel and expenses during tours.

To apply for a scholarship, you must first apply to study at Caius (in whatever subject you choose – it doesn’t have to be music) and be offered an academic place. You then need to apply for a choral award by 15 February via the University website. Please refer to the Choir’s website, which has all the information you need.

Caius also has two organ scholars at any one time, who play a vital role both in accompanying the choir and in solo work. As with Choral Awards, Organ Awards can only be held in conjunction with an academic place at the College, but you receive your academic assessment at the same time as the organ awards competition in September. If you are interested in finding out more about applying for an Organ Award more details are available on the University website. Please refer to the Caius Choir website for more information.
