Choral Scholars are selected from the existing members of the choir, and must be members of Lincoln College. However, we do also offer Choral Exhibitions to those not studying at Lincoln. Both receive an annual stipend of £100.
Lincoln offers two organ scholarships at any one time. Most organ scholars study music, and Lincoln admits two or three music students each year. Between them, the organ scholars accompany the choir and assist the Chapel Precentors with the organisation of services, concerts and tours. The Hillingsworth Organ Scholar receives an annual stipend of £500, while the Junior Organ Scholar receives £300 per annum. Both scholars are guaranteed accommodation with a piano in college for all three years of their study.
