Bursaries will be made available to defray the costs of accessing recognised expert music tuition or purchasing a musical instrument. An independent board with the appropriate expertise is in place and applicants will be assessed based on completed application forms, supporting material, and on their musical ability during an audition. Successful applicants will be invited to attend a ceremony at which they will be awarded their bursary status.
