Bursary Award Scheme

For some time now, some children have been priced out of specialist music education. At SCM we strongly believe in the importance of enabling all children to be able to benefit from and enjoy making music together.

Thanks to a very successful fundraising campaign in December 2020, we are able to award a 50% bursary to a budding young string player for each course. Whilst we will not be means testing the applicants for this bursary, please bear in mind that it is aimed at students who, due to finances, would otherwise be unable to join us on the course.

To apply:

  1. Please tick the relevant box as well as writing a paragraph about why this bursary should be awarded to the student in question on the application form. Please include details about their musical experience both at school and externally as well as any other information which will support their application for this award.
  2. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to send a short video performing any piece of their choice. Details will be sent via email once applications have been reviewed after the deadline on the 1st October.
  3. References will be obtained for shortlisted applicants. Please include contact details on the application form.
