ROSL Arts sponsors a number of scholarships for young Commonwealth musicians and visual artists. We work with institutions from Canada to New Zealand to provide the opportunity to travel to the UK and learn with some of the top practitioners in their respective fields, as well as giving them the chance to perform or exhibit in concert venues and galleries around the UK.
The ROSL Commonwealth Music Scholarships are open to students in Vancouver (University of British Columbia), Perth (University of Western Australia) and Australia (Australian Singing Competition). The recipients of the Pettman/ROSL Scholarship for a New Zealand Chamber Ensemble are chosen through our annual audition weekend in Christchurch, New Zealand and is open to established ensembles from the main music schools.
Visiting scholars will spend time staying in London, receiving lessons with renowned UK based professors as well as performing in such venues as St Martins in the Fields, St James’ Piccadilly and in our own Princess Alexandra Hall at ROSL. They will also spend time at a major UK summer school and then perform in several concerts at ROSL’s renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe series.
The ROSL Arts visual scholars are given the opportunity to spend a month in residence at Hospitalfield in Scotland, working on their practice, before returning the following year to exhibit at one our partner galleries. Each year ROSL Arts works with Hospitalfield and high profile galleries around the UK to provide these opportunities.
