Access for Equity Campaign
Uprooting inequity in conservatory education

This year, funds raised through Longy’s Gala Celebration will support the Access for Equity Campaign.
Campaign donors of $1,000 or more are invited to the Pre-Gala Celebration Bernstein Award Reception and Gala Celebration. (Value of Benefits: $250)

Equity Scholarships
We will provide five full scholarships for students from underrepresented communities who are unable to pay for their conservatory education.

Artistic and Social Change Fellowships
We will offer five service-oriented fellowships that will help students develop skills to support their career goals, while providing them with necessary scholarship funds.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: The Next Level
We are investing in a yearlong School-wide process, supported by experts in the field, to build on our past efforts and pave a path forward inequitable conservatory education.

Social Change Programs
Students build strong partnerships, sharing their talents with vulnerable and under-resourced communities through Sistema Side-by-Side and Music as a Healing Art.
