The Aberdeen University Organ Scholarship

An award of the David and June Gordon Memorial Scholarship, available to an undergraduate student at Aberdeen University, involves participating in the provision of Chapel music by playing the organ for hymns and accompanying and assisting at rehearsals (as required). In addition, he or she may be expected to play for a number of services in the Chapel at Haddo House, near Methlick, Aberdeenshire during the period between April and October, and to give a recital there.

The value of the David and June Gordon Organ Scholarship is £500 per year, paid in two instalments.

Anyone interested in applying should in the first instance contact Stuart Muir, Director of Chapel and Ceremonial Music:

The current organ scholar is Matthew McVey, who you can read more about in our Beneficiaries section.
