Scholarships, Funding and Subsidies

The Alumni Scholarship Programme supports students who are keen to develop their individual arts interest while studying.

Applications for 2017-18 WILL OPEN ON MON 21 AUG 2017 Please check the website after this date for access to the application form.

All scholarship and tuition award applicants will be considered on a case by case basis. As general guidance, apply for a Scholarship if you have achieved an advanced level of arts practice and are performing, exhibiting and/or devising your own work.  Apply for a Tuition Award only if you are in receipt of a Bath Bursary and have achieved a good standard in arts practice.

The deadline to submit your application will be Monday 9th October 2017.

“I have loved being a music scholar this year, it has allowed and encouraged me to keep my music going, something that I was worried would slip behind when I came to university. The scholarship has been such a great platform for performance opportunities and to meet other like-minded musicians who are fun to work with.” 2016/2017 Music Scholar
