The international examinations board Trinity College London has launched a pilot scheme aimed at providing small grants for Trinity candidates (via their teacher/Access Fund applicant) who are based in the UK or Ireland who may be experiencing barriers to accessing music and drama education and Trinity’s qualifications.
Barriers could include such things as:
- having Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
- living in an area of rural isolation and/or socio-economic deprivation
- being in a specific minority group
plus a range of other factors.
The grants can be used to help these candidates achieve one of Trinity’s music or drama qualifications and could be used for things such as exam fees, contribution towards equipment and instrument costs or travel to an exam venue.
How to apply
The online applications for the grants close on Friday 13 March 2020 at 5pm so you will need to act quickly if you or one of your students is interested.
There is a maximum application limit of £1,500 per group or £300 per candidate. Individual candidates cannot be awarded more than £300 in a calendar year.
For more information on the Access Fund and how you could make use of a grant please visit the Trinity website.
