RCM students sitting on the Royal Albert Hall steps


The Royal College of Music awards several fellowships, which are offered competitively to experienced musicians who aspire to take their performing careers further. They provide talented artists with the means and time to refine their artistic skills and to gain experience, confidence and connections that will help them establish themselves professionally.

All of our awards allow fellows to establish new professional contacts while continuing their development with appropriate guidance.

Applications are now open

Applications for 2019-20 fellowships are now open. The deadline for submitting applications is Monday 4 February 2019.

Junior fellowships

Junior fellowships are only available students on the Artist Diploma (ArtDip) in Performance programme. As such, all junior fellows are registered students at the RCM. We offer the following junior fellowships:

Mills Williams Junior Fellowship

Constant & Kit Lambert Junior Fellowship

Accompaniment fellowships

Accompaniment fellows do not hold student status. They are generally considered junior colleagues by faculty members with the autonomy and self-regulation that this implies. We offer the following accompaniment fellowships:

Lord & Lady Lurgan Piano Accompaniment Fellowship

Gilbert & Eileen Edgar and Anthony Saltmarsh Piano Accompaniment Fellowship

Adami Award for Piano Accompanists Fellowship

Harpsichord and Continuo Fellowship
