Regional Conservatorium Grants Program

The Regional Conservatorium Grants Program aims to offer a wide range of music education, training, performance and engagement opportunities for schools, students, teachers and community members in regional, rural and remote areas by catering for learners, performers and audiences of all ages, interests, and abilities.

There are five key outcomes for the program:

  1. Increased number of public schools participating in music education activities.
  2. Increased number of public school students engaged in quality-assured music education and training.
  3. Increased number of young people from equity target groups (Aboriginal, English as an additional language or dialect, persons with a disability, isolated and remote, gifted and talented) participating in music education activities.
  4. Increased delivery of music education services to regional and remote locations, including the use of video conferencing.
  5. Increased number of professional learning opportunities for public school teachers.

Grants are made on the understanding that the money will not cover the full operating costs of the regional conservatorium.

Regional Conservatorium Grants Program funds are not provided to support:

  • vocational education and training (VET) courses that are eligible for funding from other public sources
  • tertiary programs
  • full-time students at regional conservatoriums.
