Bursaries A limited number of bursaries are available for gifted British musicians and provide up to 55% of full costs (tuition, accommodation and food) for participating students staying in dormitory accommodation. The number of awards is limited so we recommend that applicants also apply to other grant giving bodies in order not to be disappointed.
