Director Scholarship

Apply for the Small and Midsize Chorus Director Scholarship
Application Cycle runs November 15, 2021–January 25, 2022

The scholarship is awarded to frontline directors of small and midsize choruses to attend Sweet Adelines International sponsored events which include director education. This scholarship is intended to support directors of small and midsize choruses which may not have the financial resources to send their directors to an internationally-sponsored event.
Safety and Well-Being

The safety and well-being of our members at Sweet Adelines events continues to be top priority. Sweet Adelines recognizes that knowledge about COVID-19 (how it is transmitted, treated, or possibly prevented) continues to change. We are continually monitoring local and national governmental laws, safety recommendations, venue regulations, CDC and WHO recommendations, and many other factors. In addition, Trinity University in San Antonio, TX has policies in place to protect their staff and students, which are under review and adjusted monthly. You may view the current Trinity University Safety Protocol on their website.

Registration Refunds and Airfare Disclaimer

Due to ever changing circumstances, we advise waiting to purchase airfare, or purchasing refundable airfare if possible. Sweet Adelines International is not liable for purchased airfare should the event require cancellation due to COVID-19. Please note, full registration refunds will be available for all IES registrants up until the event date.
