Organ Scholarships

An Organ Scholarship, kindly part-funded by the Ouseley Trust, is annually awarded to a talented and dedicated young organist. Usually the Organ Scholar will be a student at one of Sheffield’s two universities, further education colleges or someone wishing to take a ‘gap year’. In exceptional circumstances we may consider applications from local sixth form students.

The Organ Scholar plays an important role in the full music programme at St John’s, regularly playing for services and working with the choristers. The scholarship is ideally suited to a young person that wishes to gain valuable experience in all aspects of church music. A substantial bursary is awarded and free lessons are also available.
