A very limited number of Scholarships and Bursaries are available.

Scholarships are awarded based on merit i.e. the highest performing students based on the exam/audition results. All students are automatically assessed for Scholarship and no application is required.

Bursaries are means tested based on family income and are designed to assist families who might not otherwise be able to afford the program. They are also awarded for one year (subject to satisfactory performance). Once students are informed of their acceptance to the program, parents are required to apply for a bursary using the application form. Applications for 2017 bursaries will close on Monday 9th January 2017.
