Alumni Benefits

Travel Assistance

Travel assistance is available to CIM alumni for employment auditions and certain other professional development opportunities through the Office of Alumni Relations. Financial assistance is available for professional job interviews, auditions, competitions, professional seminars and workshops. Travel assistance funding is not available if the alumnus is paid to attend, regardless of the size of the payment.

Decisions will be based on merit and suitability of the event. Final decisions based on the eligibility criteria will be made by one representative of the previous year’s Alumni Association board, in consult with the Office of Alumni Relations. Alumni applicants who are also current students require a recommendation from the applicant’s primary CIM teacher and the Dean’s Office. Alumni applicants will not be required to submit a teacher recommendation, but will require confirmation of alumni status. Requests for assistance can cover travel and/or lodging expenses. Each award is limited to $300. Each person may receive the award only once.

Complete the application fully and return with resume attached. Each member of a chamber ensemble must submit a separate application. Recipients are required to write a thank you note to the office of Alumni Relations indicating the outcome of the event. 

Additional benefits: 

  • Special invitations to CIM concerts and events.
  • Recording services at CIM at student rates.
  • Reduced rates for use of CIM facilities.
  • Full borrowing privileges at the Robinson Music Library for alumni living in the area.
