Music scholarship

Cash award of £300 a year for talented musicians

The scholarships are available to undergraduate instrumentalists and singers. You don't need to be studying a music degree to apply. 

Successful applicants will normally have received a merit or distinction in ABRSM or Trinity/Guildhall Grade VIII or reached an equivalent standard in performance at least a year before their application.

How do I apply?

Follow the link below to apply for the scholarship and submit an audio recording that best showcases your performance skills. Instrumentalists should submit at least two contrasting pieces while singers should submit three contrasting songs. 

You'll also need to upload a copy of your highest performance qualification and a testimonial (eg from a teacher) to verify that the recordings are of your performance.
