The Foundation has created vital bursaries at eleven music colleges and conservatoires to assist music students in need of financial support. The organisations represent a high standard of traditional, classic and modern music study across the UK.
The Trustees of Universal Music UK Sound Foundation have awarded £5000 per college annually as bursaries for music students. We hope to maintain a relationship with every bursary student and follow their continued musical progress beyond study.
The bursaries are distributed at each college’s discretion based on criteria provided by The Foundation so please contact the colleges direct if you wish to enquire about our bursary. Please note this is for fees only, if you wish to purchase an instrument and/or equipment please apply directly to the Foundation using the application form.
