NCCGB Bursary Scheme 2023

The NCCGB bursary scheme exists to help participants who find it difficult to meet the costs of our course fees. We have limited bursary funds, so are currently only able to offer partial bursaries. We award bursaries of between 5% and 25% of the course fees.

Each case is assessed individually. All applications are treated in the strictest confidence.

Fees for our 2023 courses will be: 

Easter – Junior Choirs – £725, Senior Choir -£485

Summer -All choirs – £725

Other sources of funding

If you need additional funding, we are aware of the following:

Home – Dewar Awards – Scotland only

Future Talent | Inspiring Young Musicians

Charitable Trust Providing Grants For Music Study | The Wrightson Trust

The Potential Trust 

Sibling discount

If you have one than one child in the choir, you are eligible for a sibling discount of 10%. We will contact you about this once the registration form and fee have been received for each child.

Stage payments

It is possible to pay in stage payments. Please contact us to discuss this.

Eligibility criteria

We accept applications from those with an annual household income of £60,000 and below.
