SFCM has a very generous scholarship program. 99% of our students receive merit-based scholarships. Merit-based scholarship is determined by your audition, departmental needs, academic transcripts, and recommendation letters. All admitted students are considered for merit-based scholarship. If you are only applying for merit-based scholarship, you do not need to complete the FAFSA or CSS Profile.
The San Francisco Conservatory of Music awards scholarships on the basis of musical ability, financial need and the musical needs of the school. Scholarship awards and tuition do not increase proportionally. Scholarships are available to full-time students in the Music Diploma program, the Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degree programs, the Artist Certificate program, the Postgraduate Diploma in Vocal Performance and the Professional Studies Diploma. To qualify, undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA and graduate students must maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA. All students must remain full-time in order to receive their scholarship. For more details or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
