Regional Holiday Program Scholarships

Any musician who is a primary or secondary school student and resides at least 200km from Sydney CBD is eligible to apply for regional scholarship support. Successful applicants will receive a full or partial waiver on the 2024 participation fee ($595) and/or a travel and accommodation bursary. The amount of this bursary is dependent on the circumstances of the applicant. 

Applications for the Regional Winter School Scholarship program close on Sunday 26 May, 2024. Applicants will be contacted with the result on Friday 7 June, 2024.

If your participation in any holiday program is dependent on receiving a scholarship, you may apply for the scholarship only without enrolling. However this does not guarantee your place. For any questions regarding scholarship applications without enrolment please email Daniel Placido (daniel.placido@syo.com.au)

The HSC Preparatory programs are not eligible for scholarship support. SYO does not organise any accommodation for holiday programs. Participants are to book their own accommodation.
