Performing Arts Scholarships
Scholarships are awarded to students who have achieved a high level in Music, Visual Arts or Speech and Drama. A high level of achievement in Dance, alone, is not sufficient for the awarding of a scholarship, but may contribute if the student has other abilities.
Auditions will be held for short-listed applicants who will be notified of the date, time and requirements. Scholarships will not be awarded until after the interview process is complete.
Several years’ successful experience as an instrumentalist or vocalist is required. Details of performance, Eisteddfod results, examination and tuition history must be supplied. A written reference from the student’s music teacher may also be included.
Speech and Drama/Dance
Details of performance, Eisteddfod results, examination and tuition history must be supplied. A written reference from the student’s performing arts teacher may also be included.
A folio of work should be submitted, along with information about results in competitions, experience and, if undertaken, tuition.

Awarding of Scholarships/Bursaries
The awarding of scholarships/bursaries takes into account objective information (e.g. test results), supporting information and the interview process.

Renewal/Continuation of Scholarships/Bursaries
Scholarships are normally awarded for the duration of the student’s time at the College. However, should the student show a decline in his/her level of commitment, behaviour or contribution to the community (or unwarranted decline in performance), the scholarship will be reviewed and may be discontinued.
