Student at the master's programme in opera
SEK 52 500 from the Ingrid and Erland Glimstedt Fund
What does the scholarship mean for your studies?
- First of all, thank you so much for this scholarship! It is an incredible help for my education and development. As I have been studying for many years now, my CSN has run out, so this scholarship will be a huge support in my final year at the Academy of Music and Drama. It gives me the freedom to focus more on my studies and opens doors for further specialisation.
How do you plan to use the grant?
- In a number of ways. Firstly, I have already ordered several piano scores of various Mozart operas published by Bärenreiter. These are quite expensive, but having them on my bookshelf makes my studies easier and is a great source of inspiration! Secondly, the money will pay for future audition trips. In addition, the money is a grant that will ease my personal finances for a few months. It means that both time and energy will be freed up to concentrate fully on singing and studying.
Thoughts about the scholarship fund and tips for scholarship applicants
- The scholarship fund is a fantastic opportunity for us students to finance our studies and career plans. Many of us who are studying at the Academy of Music and Drama have already completed several years of study and therefore no longer receive any financial support from CSN. So the fact that this opportunity exists means an incredible amount; it allows us to focus and take certain financial risks that this industry sometimes requires. My advice to other students is to keep a close eye on the scholarships available and really take the time to apply.
