We are a not-for-profit organization. Our goal is to make arts and music accessible to all, overcoming all obstacles and thereby, realizing Richard Wagner's dream.


To achieve this goal, it enables talented aspiring musicians, singers or other stage-professionals, who may be considered as young talents for the Bayreuth Festival orchestra or stage, to attend several performances of the Bayreuth Festival and thus to directly comprehend Richard Wagner's revolutionary festival idea.

Today it is primarily the worldwide Richard Wagner Associations, which are members of the Richard Wagner Verband International, and the Society of Friends of Bayreuth that provide the Richard Wagner Scholarship Foundation with the necessary funds.

Our winners include:

Sébastien Comtois - 2022

Olivia Barnes - 2023

Karina Bray - 2023
