Funding Opportunity

NYAT Bursaries

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

We grant 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.

We open applications for bursaries several times a year, and the next deadline is 31 January 2023. If you apply after this, we’ll consider your application in the next round.

Applications are made through our website. Before you apply check the criteria and documents you need on our website.

Contact us if you need the application form printed, in large print, in braille or in another language.
