INDIVIDUALS

Children and young adults showing exceptional musical talent (e.g. music students or recent music graduates), who live in Surrey or have a strong link to Surrey and intend to make a career in music, can apply to the Trust for help in purchasing an instrument or funding tuition, should your financial means be insufficient. The Trust’s grants are confined to UK citizens and exclude funding for courses at foreign universities.

HOW TO APPLY

Your application should be by email, no more than six pages long, and comprise: -
                - your CV, including testimonials from your teacher or other qualified person
                - your claim to a strong link to Surrey
                - the reason for your application
- the amount you are requesting from the Trust, and
if applying for financial help with tuition
                - details of the length and cost of your course
if applying for help in purchasing an instrument
- written quotes from two or more suppliers for the same instrument. Where you cannot avoid quoting for different instruments (they are second-hand, for example), you should indicate a preference and explain.  Links to a website or printouts from a catalogue are not acceptable.
