Music scholarship

We offer music scholarships, worth £300 a year, to undergraduate instrumentalists and singers. The scholarship is paid as a cash award. You don’t need to be studying a Music degree to be eligible.

How do I apply?

Applications are now closed for this year.

Applicants are asked to submit an audio recording that best showcases their performing skills. Instrumentalists are asked to submit at least two contrasting pieces while singers submit three contrasting songs.

Applicants are also asked to upload a copy of the highest performance qualification if available and a ‘testimonial’ from an authority (such as a teacher) to verify that the recordings are of the applicant’s performances.

If you have any queries please contact

Additional information

Your audio recording should be authenticated by your music or instrumental teacher.

Please bear in mind that successful applicants should have normally 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.
