Each year thousands of young musicians apply for admission to NEC from all over the world. Nine out of ten need significant financial help. For many, the scholarship and loan package is a crucial factor in their decision to attend NEC.
Creating a scholarship at New England Conservatory is a rewarding experience. When you witness one of the beneficiaries of your scholarship on one of the NEC stages, you may rightly claim, "I helped give that musician a chance to soar!" Two scholarship recipients who have been given the chance to soar appear in the video on this page.
More than two hundred named scholarships support students in nearly every program. These include 15 Presidential Scholarships, which cover full tuition and are awarded to the very top tier of NEC's talent.
NEC encourages our donors to get to know the students who benefit from their generosity. To learn more about establishing a scholarship at NEC, please email Julia Olson, Associate Director of Donor Relations, or call her at 617-585-1185.
