Scholarships at the Academy of Music and Drama

As a student at the Academy of Music and Drama, you have many options to apply for scholarships. Some of them can cover your tuition fees, entirely or partially, while others have the purpose to contribute to your development during your studies. While some of the scholarships are distributed by the Academy of Music and Drama, there are also others that you must apply for from the University of Gothenburg or from the Swedish Institute.

Congratulations!

In March 2021, Inês Cruz and Miguel Angel Chamorro, students at the master's programme in Symphonic Orchestra Performance, were awarded scholarships from the foundation to the memory of Robert Möller.

Inês Cruz, violin

Scholarship: SEK 75.000

I come from a little town called Vila Nova de Famalicão in the north of Portugal. Currently, I am studying my second year of my master's programme in Symphonic Orchestra Performance at the Academy of Music and Drama.

I cannot describe the gratitude I feel towards the Robert Möller’s foundation for being awarded this scholarship. Without their help, I wouldn’t be able to obtain a bow that will help me to become a better musician, and to preserve my health in the long term. And for that I am truly grateful.

Miguel Angel Chamorro, violin

Scholarship: SEK 75.000

I am a violinist from Colombia more exactly from Medellín, the eternal spring city. At the moment I’m finishing my first year of the master's programme in Symphonic Orchestra Performance at the Academy of Music and Drama.

Studying here has been an amazing opportunity, and this scholarship is astonishing. I am very happy, because now I am able to acquire some tools that will make my studies more productive, and I will push my limits even more to be a better musician. I can not be more grateful for this marvelous opportunity.

Scholarships during your studies

Scholarships amounting to a total of approximately 3 Million SEK annually are distributed by the Academy of Music and Drama.

Furthermore, a number of scholarships are distributed by the scholarship board without application procedure.
Most of these scholarships have the purpose to contribute to our student's development of artistic and pedagogical skills. This may include summer courses, private lessons or travel and lodging in connection with a master class. Exceptionally, it may also apply to the purchase of instruments, materials or technical equipment directly related to the education.
