Only students enrolled in an institution of higher learning in music in France or abroad are eligible for the Saline Royale Academy scholarship program.

The scholarships, which range from 100 to 450 euros, are granted on the basis of social criteria and the awarding of them takes into account the motivation, the background and the professional project of the student.

Obtaining a scholarship may result in the student's participation in artistic activities organized during the session in which he or she is registered.

The application must be written in French or English and all sections must be completed. The scholarship committee will notify its decision simultaneously with decision of the artistic committee.

In case of a negative response, the cancellation of the application by the student will not give rise to a refund of the registration fee.


The usual meeting and dining rooms of the Saline royale of Arc-et-Senans, site UNESCO, in France will be refurbished to accommodate the activities of the Saline Royale Academy. These include individual classes and workrooms for students.


The rooms are accessible from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with a reservation schedule posted on each entrance door. Students can also rehearse in their rooms.


During the classical music academies, students have the opportunity to stay in the heart of the Saline Royale. They will be accommodated in the Saline's 3-star hotel.

The hotel has single rooms, double rooms and dormitories to accommodate students, teachers and staff. The rooms have been renovated and decorated by the designers, architects and authors Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Damien Cabiron.

Which means that we offer you an exceptional living environment when taking our master classes.
