The Chigiana Global Academy Program maintains the tradition of the Count Guido Chigi Saracini, founder of the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, in seeking to provide access to excellent musical education and performance opportunities to talented students from around the world.
In accordance with this goal the Accademia Chigiana is committed to fundraising initiatives that will directly support student scholarships in order to lower the cost of attendance for students who are accepted into the C-GAP programs. At this time, limited scholarship money is available for exceptionally qualified students who will be selected via the Chigiana Scholarship Application.
The C-GAP maintains affiliations with U.S. universities who are distinguished in the field of music education. Partner institutions each have a faculty member liaison whose official role is to facilitate collaboration between the university and Chigiana. Partner institutions are also committed to facilitating the availability of financial aid and university based scholarships for their students.
