Scholarships are a way to reward, encourage, and assist students in pursuing their studies.

They are awarded:

  • for outstanding performance ability, demonstrated at audition;
  • for particular disciplines (e.g. shortage instruments); and
  • in the form of a reduction in fees.

The majority of awards are partial tuition awards but Trinity Laban also offers some full tuition awards to especially gifted musicians who participate in our live auditions.

Further information relating to music and dance specific awards can be found below.


Music Scholarships
