About The Sullivan Foundation
The Foundation seeks exceptionally talented young singers who are still taking early steps, but, in the judgment of the screening panel, show promise for significant careers. Applicants must have completed their academic training, and should have sung at least one professional engagement with full orchestral accompaniment.

2017 Sullivan Foundation auditions will be held in New York City on November 12 and 13 at the National Opera Center. Several winners will receive Sullivan Awards of at least $10,000 and are eligible for additional Role Preparation Grants for the next five years. To be considered, 2017 applications had to be complete by September 18 at 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time), including reference letters. For more information, visit or contact us at
