Scholarship Eligibility

In order to be considered for Tianjin Juilliard Scholarship and The Tianjin Juilliard Fellowship Program, applicants must complete the Graduate Studies application, audition, submit all necessary documents, and submit the CSS Profile found on the College Board website. Only those who pass pre-screening will be required to complete the CSS Profile. There is not a separate application for scholarship or Fellowship consideration.

Scholarship decisions are made by the Tianjin Juilliard Scholarship Committee upon the student’s admission to Tianjin Juilliard and are based on a combination of artistic merit and financial need. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the two-year Master of Music degree program. Students can expect the same amount of scholarship assistance each year provided they demonstrate satisfactory academic progress.

Tianjin Juilliard Scholarship

Applicants to The Tianjin Juilliard School will be considered for need-based, merit-influenced scholarship. All admitted students will be considered for scholarship based on the Graduate Studies application, audition results, academic records, recommendations, and institutional need for each program and instrument. The amount of the scholarship will vary, based on artistic merit, financial need, and institutional need.

The Tianjin Juilliard Fellowship Program

The Tianjin Juilliard School has launched The Tianjin Juilliard Fellowship Program at The Julliard School’s new branch campus in Tianjin, China. Recipients will receive full-tuition, merit-based scholarships to pursue the US-accredited, two-year Master of Music degree in orchestral studies, chamber music, and collaborative piano.

The selection will be based on the Graduate Studies application, a selective audition process, prior musical and academic achievement, and extraordinary potential for leadership in the field.

The prestigious fellowship will nurture the development of young artists at a critical point in their educational, musical, and professional development, allowing them to focus on developing their artistry with financial support. Fellows will experience enhanced programmatic opportunities, including performances, teaching experience, and community engagement. These opportunities will continue to expand as the institution forges partnerships around the world.
