National Council Auditions

Education Fund


National Semi-Finalists, Finalists and Winners are eligible for further financial assistance of up to $5,000 from the National Council Education Fund over a period of three years after the competition.

No more than $3,000 will be awarded at one time, and at least six months must have elapsed since a singer competed in the National Semi-Finals or was last heard by the professional committee of the Metropolitan Opera before reapplying.

These funds are obtained through an Education Fund audition and application process and will be dispersed at the discretion of the Metropolitan Opera’s Artistic staff.
