The Radford Charitable Trust
The Radford Charitable Trust was set up in 1970 with money given by Maisie and Evelyn Radford to advance musical education and to help musicians in Cornwall.
Applications can be made at any time, but the majority of the decisions are made at the annual meeting of the Trustees in September.
Who can apply to receive a grant?
Applicants must be resident in Cornwall. In the case of university and post-graduate students, residence up to the age of 18 is acceptable.
Applications should preferably be made for specific needs. In general, grants are available to assist in the purchase of instruments and music, as a contribution towards the cost of tutition and travel, and for study courses.
Requests are also considered for grant aid in respect of county course fees, provided the authority has already been approached. Where applicants are in full time study the Trustees will want to know the extent to which parents can contribute and what other sources of financial help have been approached.
A music teacher's reference is an essential part of any application, as is documentary evidence in support of financial circumstances and commitments.
