Financial Assistance

AYO is committed to ensuring that all eligible musicians are able to participate in our programs regardless of financial and geographic barriers. We have a generous financial assistance program which helps participants offset the program fees and travel costs associated with attending AYO programs.

  • Financial assistance is open to all successful applicants and is means-tested to ensure those with the greatest need receive assistance
  • Applicants may wait to receive the outcome of their financial assistance application before paying their program fees
  • In addition to this, AYO offers musicians the option of setting up a payment plan

Applications for financial assistance will open upon the release of first round offers on Tuesday 18 October.

If you have any concerns regarding meeting the cost of AYO programs please contact AYO by phone on 1300 668 500, or by email at
