Every year, The Broadway Festival Trust awards grants of between £500 – £1000+ to local students starting or in full time education in the arts. This bursary applies to students studying Fine Art, Applied Arts, Music or the Performing Arts. The grants are awarded in order to help students with course expenses and foreign travel for their field of study.

Priority is given to applicants who currently reside in the parish of Broadway or have a WR12 postcode, but applications are also considered from neighbouring areas.

The festival and Charitable Trust aims to maintain and develop Broadway’s artistic heritage as an established venue for artistic excellence. The student arts grants play a pivotal role in this.

How do you qualify?

  • You must be 18 or over on September 1st and about to start or in full time education in the arts on a degree or postgraduate course at a University or College
  • Priority will be given to applicants who currently reside or, if already having started a course, have a family residential address in the WR12 postcode, but applications will be considered from neighbouring areas.
