The Loveday Scholarship

Professor Anthony Bowne, Liza Loveday and Mark Loveday, at a reception at King Charles Court, to celebrate the founding of the Loveday Scholarship in May 2010.

 The Loveday Scholarship was founded in 2010, through an endowed gift, establishing one of the most prestigious scholarships at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance:

We are excited to establish this scholarship as part of our ongoing relationship with Trinity Laban, supporting the excellent work the Conservatoire does in nurturing highly gifted music and dance students. We very much look forward to seeing the Loveday Scholars in action at future performances. Mark and Liza Loveday, Hon FTL

This highly competitive award is available on an annual basis, to a postgraduate student studying or proposing to study at Trinity Laban, who demonstrates exceptional talent, but who is in need of financial support to continue his or her studies.

This academic year, 2015/16, the Loveday Scholar is Alexander Verster, a double bass player from Auckland, New Zealand.

Alexander is undertaking a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Practice and is studying classical double bass with the world-renowned Leon Bosch.
