Diverse backgrounds can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, nationality, language, religious beliefs, socioeconomic background, and other areas of identity. 

Applications will be evaluated based on the thoughtfulness of responses and potential for the scholarship to make a lasting impact in the applicant’s career and/or choral community. Applicants may apply for multiple scholarships but will receive no more than one award. Scholarship recipients are selected on a competitive basis.
