Darcey Bussell Genée Bursary Scheme
Our new international bursary scheme is aimed at widening access to the Genée.
Funded by donations made at the QEII Coronation Award Gala in September 2014, these bursaries will support eligible students who, for financial reasons, might not otherwise be able to enter the Genée.
Between five and ten bursaries, each worth a minimum of £1,500 a year, will be made available by the RAD for the next five years, to candidates from across the world. Named in honour of our President, the new Darcey Bussell Genée Bursaries will cover successful applicants’ entry fees, travel expenses and associated costs.
In addition, The Dame Margot Fonteyn Scholarship Fund has pledged to award a bursary of up to £2,000 per year for the next 5 years to support eligible Genée candidates.
Bursary applications will open in March, with Genée competition applications opening in April.
Applications are open from 19 March until 30 April 2015. Apply now.
