The comprehensive fee for the six-week program remains at $6,100 and will not be raised for the 2017 season. This includes room, board, tuition, student activities, and airport shuttle service between the Institute campus and either Dulles International, Charlottesville, or Shenandoah Valley airports.
The Heifetz International Music Institute is committed to providing high quality instruction and we operate with as low a student to instructor ratio as possible. Our faculty are contracted in advance; as such we are unable to issue refunds for cancellations once tuition deposits have been made. Under extenuating circumstances, we may reschedule participation with the Institute to the following year.
Full and partial scholarships are available to qualified students. Scholarships are based primarily on demonstrated financial need, but merit is considered. Early applications are given first priority consideration. We also recommend that you investigate grant and scholarship opportunities within your community (schools, religious groups, arts or civic organizations, community foundations, and private donors) for alternate sources of financial aid.
Applicants are required to submit two recent videos to the Heifetz International Music Institute portal via Acceptd. One piece must be virtuosic in nature, and the other must be lyrical. For full details about audition requirements, click here.
The Heifetz Institute typically accepts students between the ages of 13 and 25. However, students of all ages are welcome to apply, as exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The application deadline is January 31, 2017. Late applications will be accepted if space is available. Submit your application by December 31, 2016 to save $15 on your application fee.
