Application requirements for the Mario Lanza Institute Scholarship Program are:

  • Application form
  • $50 app. fee
  • Proof of age
  • Repertoire info.
Additional Information: Preliminary auditions will take place at The Settlement Music School, 416 Queen St., Philadelphia, PA, on Monday, October 14 and Tuesday, October 15, 2019 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. At the audition, the student will choose his/her first piece (from the list provided on his/her application), and the judges may then ask for another piece off of the student's list. The first piece should be chosen carefully to show the student's vocal ability, as there may not be sufficient time for a second piece. An accompanist is provided at no additional cost. The four winners will then perform at the Mario Lanza Ball, where judges will make their final determinations for the four awards. Finalists must perform at the Mario Lanza Ball to receive a scholarship. There is a two-time limit for past winners of the Mario Lanza Institute Scholarship. No previous first place winners of this award are permitted to apply. Singers already performing leading or comprimario roles with a major opera company are ineligible for this competition.

Award Amount: Prizes are awarded as follows: first place, $2,500; second place, $2,000; third place, $1,500; and fourth place, $1,000. All prizes are non-renewable.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $1,750.
