Bursaries

Due to the generosity of the Trustees and the donations to our Charity, “Music for People” is able to offer 5 bursaries for the 2022 school. A Bursary may be a whole or a half free place at Summer School and includes all or the relative portion of all tuition costs, accommodation and meals. These bursaries do not cover travel to or from the School or other incidental costs. All bursaries are open to existing and new students.

The Bursary Committee will make the decisions about whether a full or half scholarship may be awarded based on the application received.
