Financial Assistance

The TYO is committed to ensuring its programs are available to all young Tasmanian musicians, regardless of financial situation. While annual fees only represent a portion of the value of our programs, we are proud to offer a range of financial assistance options for those who may find that cost prohibitive.

Payment Plan

We can set up incremental payment dates over the first few months of the year to assist with cash flow or to ease the post-Christmas-start-of-school-year financial strain. 


Bursaries will be means-tested and are available to those experience financial difficulties or incurring additional travel costs in order to attend TYO rehearsals. We are especially excited to offer more bursaries in 2018 than ever before and, in partnership with the Tasmanian Government, additional funds are available especially for Department of Education students.

Financial Assistance Guidelines

TYO requires successful applicants (and their guardian if under 18 years of age) to acknowledge the support given to them by meeting the conditions listed below:

Commit to participating in TYO for the length of the position (ie to Sun 4 Nov).
Adhere to terms described in the TYO Participant Handbook at all times.
Be available to represent TYO to perform at events or special concerts for our supporters, as reasonably requested.
Participants (and their guardians if applicable) may be asked to volunteer their time to assist TYO in administration tasks or event activities, as reasonably requested.

If a participant does not adhere to the TYO Participant Handbook or has an unacceptable number of absences resulting in their position being cancelled, they are liable to return the FULL value of the scholarship, regardless of the period of participation.

The distribution of these finite funds is at the discretion of the TYO Board and that decision is final.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact TYO administration on

Applications for financial assistance is now open! Apply below before 7 January 2018 to be considered.
