Examinations Bursary

We are delighted to announce our new RAD bursary fund for examinations.

This Bursary has been established thanks to the many generous donors to our Steps to Success campaign. We are extremely grateful for their support.

The fund has been set up to create even more opportunities for dancers who may struggle financially to enter our exams, to reduce inequality, and to expand our exams into new, under-represented groups globally.

All exams are eligible including the Solo Seal Award and bursaries are available worldwide.

Successful candidates will have 6 months to use the bursary from the date of being informed of their award.

We hope you or a teacher you know may be able to take up this opportunity to provide financial assistance to deserving candidates.

Applications and Awarding dates

The Application process is open throughout the year, you can submit your application for your nominees anytime. however, the awarding dates will be in January and June.

The January award is to facilitate free exam entries to your nominees entering the Spring and Summer exam sessions. The June award covers your nominees’ examinations in the Winter exam session.

We would like to thank everyone who applied for the last rounds of the bursaries and congratulate all the candidates who were awarded.
