Alumni Foundation Music Bursaries

About the Alumni Foundation

The University of Bristol Alumni Foundation was established in 1982 "to support the University of Bristol as a place of excellence in teaching and research and to enhance the quality of University life by providing financial support for selected areas of the University's activity." Funds have been contributed by current and former staff, by alumni, by their parents and by many others friends of the University, and grants have been awarded across a broad range of University activities, both academic and non-academic.

About the Bursaries

The purpose of the Alumni Foundation Music Bursaries is to support the strong musical tradition associated with the University by enabling talented student musicians who have already made a significant contribution to the musical life of the University (but who are not based in the Department of Music) to benefit from professional tuition in either voice, instrument or conducting.


Awards will normally be of the order of £500 and will be valid for one session only, though award-holders may reapply for a bursary in subsequent sessions.


Alumni Bursaries will not be open to students who already hold a University Music Award (Organ or Choral Scholarship) or to those studying a degree within the Music Department. Award-holders will be advised by the Department of Music regarding the choice of teacher, and the Alumni Foundation will pay the bursary at the beginning of the academic year.
