Cost/Scholarships

The goals of The Cornish-American Song Institute are not only to provide a world-class musical and cultural experience, but also to make this affordable! We are the least expensive, multi-week European training program and offer the most substantive musical and cultural experience available.

The total cost includes:

  • 22 nights lodging with breakfast each morning
  • applied lessons, coachings, classes, master classes
  • day sight-seeing trips to local castles/historic areas
  • all ground transport  from Oxford-Falmouth and Falmouth-London.

Total Cost: $3595

(Note: airfare from US to the UK is not included, nor is lunch and dinner each day)

A $30 application fee applies and is due with the submission of each application.  If admitted, a non-refundable deposit of $1500 is due by March 15, 2017 and payment of the full balance is due by April 15, 2017.  Please note, online payments via credit card  for Application Fees are free of charge, but payments for Deposits and Final Payments will incur a 3% charge to offset the fee charged by the processing company.

Due to recent fluctuations in the Dollar to Great British Pound conversion rate, CASI has instituted a Conversion Rate Deposit to be submitted with final payments for the 2017 season.  The $300 deposit is refundable if there is no negative change in the exchange rate between the date of final payment (April 15, 2017) and the final day of CASI 2017 (June 25, 2017).  If there is negative turn in the value of the Dollar in relation to the GBP, the CASI administration will be solely in charge of the application of these fees to offset the exchange rate differences.

Scholarships:

Merit scholarships may be offered to deserving applicants.  In addition, CASI will offer a limited number “Home-stay” scholarships to those who are trying to save some money.  Home-stays will entail staying in a private bedroom  in the home of a Falmouth Family.  These will include breakfast as well, but not lunch or dinner.  Home-stays are not possible for the Oxford component of the Institute.
