Our aim is that no one be excluded for financial reasons
There are funds available for school students with particular need. If your means are such that you would not be able to attend a course without significant help, please apply as your first choice to the courses in Durham or Cambridge, for which larger bursaries might be available.
The bursaries available include those from the Choral Course Foundation. Forms can be downloaded as you apply or obtained from the administrator and must be returned with the course application form. All details given are in confidence.
Donations to the Choral Course Foundation are very welcome.
“I’ve had so many opportunities as a direct result of the course and I believe that everyone should be able to have these opportunities, regardless of financial situation, which is why I think this is so important.” Course student 2013
There are many other sources of funding in the form of grants, scholarships and bursaries. You are encouraged to contact your local council and explore the options advised by the following:
- Future Talent
- Musicians’ Benevolent Fund
- School Music Association Founders’ Fund
- Uni Grants UK
- The Wrightson Trust
We should be very happy to provide accompanying letters to give further credibility to external applications.
