It is open to applicants who will be resident in the UK for the duration of the programme and who are eligible to train/work in the UK.

The NYCGB Fellowship programme is fully open to those who have not previously been an NYCGB member as well as those who are current or previous members.

NYCGB is striving to build an inclusive community and we want to help achieve meaningful and balanced representation in choral leadership. To this end, we strongly encourage young people of Black, Asian & ethnically diverse backgrounds to apply for this programme. We also welcome applications from disabled people as well as those from lower income households. NYCGB Fellowship is a free training programme and expenses are covered by NYCGB.

In order to fully participate in this programme and experience its full benefits, applicants should not be in full-time formal education during the course of the programme. We would consider studying on a full-time degree or other higher education programme to be full-time formal education. We recognise that some education, for example a programme of research-based study may be organised on a part-time or more flexible basis, and if someone is taking part in this type of programme and can commit to the schedule of NYCGB Fellowship activities, they would be eligible to apply.
