National Beginner's Scholarship

The RCCO's College Development Fund funds scholarships nationally for beginning organ students who show promise and ability. Students apply for this scholarship through their local RCCO Centre.

Selection and Award Process

The Victoria Centre's scholarship committee assesses applicants by audition, then proposes suitable candidates to the National Scholarship and Bursary Committee for approval. If approved, money is sent to the Centre to pay for lessons with a qualified organ teacher. The award is currently $600, typically enough for ten one-hour lessons.

Audition Requirements


Pieces may be played on piano or organ, and should be Level 6 of the RCM or higher. Repeats may be omitted.
