Collaborative Piano Fellowship at Bard College

A big thanks to Nathan Madsen, Director of Conservatory Admissions at Bard College Conservatory of Music, who sends along the following information regarding Bard College's two-year Collaborative Piano Fellowship:
I wanted to let you know about our postgraduate piano fellowship here at Bard. It is a 1-2 year program and offers free room and board, as well as a $15,000 stipend. The program is headed by Frank Corliss, who for many years was staff pianist at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Thanks and regards,
Nathan Madsen
Here's a bit more about the fellowship program from the Bard site:
The fellowship is open to both students who have already completed a degree in collaborative piano and those students who have completed a bachelors degree in piano performance and have a strong interest in further study in collaborative piano. The program allows students to expand their knowledge of the core collaborative piano repertoire, to get experience in playing for high level undergraduate and graduate students under the mentorship of master musicians, and to deepen their musical understanding through the guidance of the distinguished faculty of the Bard College Conservatory of Music.
The admission deadline for the following academic year is March 13. For more information, you can contact Nathan at conservatory [at] bard dot edu.
