At The Hague’s prestigious Royal Conservatoire, students build the foundation for an international career in music or dance. Outstanding faculty and internationally appealing projects ensure that these emerging talents are offered a top-tier education and are groomed for an international professional practice. The Royal Conservatoire has a support fund to help realize these ambitions: Fonds Koninklijk Conservatorium.

Fonds Koninklijk Conservatorium

The Fonds Koninklijk Conservatorium (Fonds KC) is dedicated to nurturing young artistic talent. We achieve this by financing unique educational initiatives, offering scholarships and loans, distributing awards, and ensuring the acquisition and upkeep of instruments at the Royal Conservatoire.

Fonds KC is the result of the merger of the Royal Conservatoire’s support foundations Fund for Excellence, Instrument Fund, and Friends of the Royal Conservatoire. Operational since 2024, Fonds KC is recognized as an ANBI foundation by the Dutch Tax Authority and is awaiting ‘Recognised Charity’ status from the CBF.

An independent entity with strong ties to the Royal Conservatoire, Fonds KC ensures all resources directly benefit its students. Our board, adhering to the University of the Arts The Hague’s integrity and conduct codes, consists of:

Henk van der Zwan, Chairman

Annelie Kohl, Secretary

Josip Petrarca, Treasurer

Hoie Lien The, Board member

Board members volunteer their time without compensation.
