Awarded annually, INDEPENDENT OPERA at Sadler’s Wells Voice Scholarships and Postgraduate Voice Fellowships provide funding and mentoring for singers in the early stages of their operatic careers. Listed below are details of current and past award recipients.

"Independent Opera plays a key role in enabling emerging artists to make the difficult transition from student to professional, which is why I give the organisation my full support, not just by spreading the word about its productions, fellowships and scholarships, but also by actively helping the young with vocal coaching and advising them on how best they might achieve their ambitions." Dame Anne Evans, Honorary Patron
