As part of our charitable objectives, each year, BABS gives around £18,000 to its member clubs, individual members, and members of the public, to help to educate the world about barbershop singing.

Harmony College Scholarships

One of the benefits that BABS provides for the barbershop community is a number of scholarships, enabling some who will benefit most from the experience to attend, when they might not otherwise have been able to afford to do so.

The number of scholarships available varies year on year, but there will always be the following four scholarships available. 

  • Joe Liles Scholarship: Any BABS Youth member (under 26 on first day of HC) who wishes to enrol on any stream
  • The John Grant Barbershopper Of The Year: Winner gets free place place on a stream of their choice
  • The Joe Berry Young Barbershopper of The Year: Winner gets free place on a stream of their choice
  • Chorus Recruitment Champion: Winning chorus gets one free place on a stream of their choice

Scholarships are not stream specific, are open for anyone to apply,  and will be awarded on a case by case basis. 

Harmony College Scholarships become available to apply for around Mid June, and succesful applicants will be notified by the end of July.
