Time to check deadlines...competitions, scholarships and more!

I am currently in the process of making a list of application deadlines of scholarships and competitions for my students (and some for me - like the NATS Intern Program - more on that later!). Here are a few that have come to my attention this week:

Opera Nuova

Designed for Canadian Singers, who are of advanced standing with considerable
previous training, this intensive program is a must for singers who wish to focus on development technique while simultaneously working on their performance skills.
These comprehensive programs provide instruction in creative process, acting, movement, Alexander technique, diction, language and vocal interpretation taught by distinguished faculty who are experts in their field. Our guest teachers, who are internationally recognized artists, give daily mini-master classes, public forum master classes and private voice lessons.

Opera Nuova offers both a 4-week and a 6-week program for singers and a 5-week program for collaborative pianists.
Deadline: October 25 (Received by)

Young Singers Foundation
Our Vision The Young Singers Foundation feels a well-rounded education for our young people should include music. Without the opportunity to participate in music programs, youngsters are deprived of unique opportunities to develop their creativity, to learn self-discipline and team work, to increase their sense of self-worth, and to learn to live in a global society.

Created by Sweet Adelines International in 1992, the Young Singers Foundation offers $2000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in universities both in the US and Canada.
Deadline: February 15

Both of these opportunities came to me through YAP Tracker. If you don't already have it....GET IT! It is the most comprehensive listing of Young Artist Programs and Competitions out there. (Email me for a $5 discount too!)
