Unique in Canada, The Rebanks Family Fellowship and International Performance Residency Program is the one-year postgraduate program of The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School. Created for artists on the cusp of a professional career, it offers a rich curriculum for career development including: private study with exceptional faculty and guest artists; concert presentations and career coaching; and marketing training and support. Each Rebanks Fellow also participates in a funded international residency.
The Royal Conservatory is grateful to the Rebanks Family and The W. Garfield Weston Foundation who have made this innovative program possible through their generous support.
The Rebanks Family Fellowship is offered in piano, voice and orchestral instruments.
Rebanks Fellows are selected based on a number of criteria. They will be self-starters with exceptional talent, commitment, and a passion for a career in performance; demonstrate leadership skills; and display a strong desire to share and connect with others. A mix of Canadian and international students will be selected. Fellowships will be awarded for a one year term.
