returning participants

Pianists who participated in previous MIPFA Programs in the last 5 years are automatically granted a tuition reduction when they apply.

Their application is also more likely to receive a Merit Scholarship based on their involvement with the academy on their last visit to MIPFA.


Thanks to the support of individual donors that support the Miami International Piano Festival Academy, the artistic committee will select five outstanding participants as recipients of merit scholarships.

Merit scholarships are granted only to those participants with a level of excellence. The artistic committee will review the online auditions submitted with their application to grant these scholarships that will cover 50% of the cost of the program. 

Merit scholarships will help cover only the expenses of the program. Participants need to cover their application and registration fees ($50.00 and $250). Applicants that participate in previous programs are more likely to obtain a Merit Scholarship.
