MELBA OPERA TRUST
Melba Opera Trust is Australia’s premier scholarship program for promising young opera singers. Driven by Dame Nellie Melba’s conviction “a beautiful voice is not enough”, the program nurtures artistic development alongside business training, mentoring and performance experience. We are the next step for singers preparing to become professionals on the world stage.
Our unique national scholarship program is divided into three complementary parts – Artistic Development, our Mentor Program and our Melba Artists Performance Program. By offering these three levels of support, we encourage a rounded development program with a focus on excellence and a view to developing polished young professionals who will stand out in a competitive industry.

Our scholarship application period is from 1st September – 30th September annually. We seek the most exceptional talent from a national pool of candidates, so planning ahead to prepare your application is encouraged. Learn about our:
