National Youth Arts Trust – Bursaries

National Youth Arts Trust logo

Open on a rolling basis.

Is money stopping you from taking part in music, dance or drama?

National Youth Arts Trust grants music bursaries, dance bursaries and drama bursaries, up to £1,000 each, to talented young people aged 12-25 who can’t afford to access opportunities in the arts. A bursary typically pays for a year’s part time dance, music or drama classes, and it can be used to cover some other expenses and costs too, including tuition fees at drama school.

They open applications for bursaries several times a year, and the most recent deadline was 25 June 2021. If you apply after this, they’ll consider your application in the next round. Sign up to their newsletter and we’ll keep you posted about future deadlines.
