The aim of the Leverhulme Trust Arts Scholarships is to provide training opportunities across the whole range of artistic disciplines in the fine and performing arts. Funding will be available for (a) Bursaries to encourage individuals to develop their talent and/or (b) Innovative teaching activity to support the artistic development of the students concerned.
The first call for applications is now open for grants to be offered for a period of three years running from September 2013 to August 2016. The closing date for applications is 4.00pm on 28 September 2012. The next call for applications will be in spring 2015 for grants to cover the period September 2016 to August 2019, and it is anticipated that thereafter there will be a call every three years.
The Trust welcomes applications from all sectors of the fine and performing arts community, including (but not exclusively) music, drama, dance, film and fine art. The scheme will support arts training at any level; that is, from school-age children, to undergraduates and postgraduates.
