Bursaries Awarded

November 9, 2019

Trustees of THF have approved 12  bursaries so far this year, totalling over £4000, to young people Teignbridge with talents and ambitions in the arts but whose families lack the financial means to help them pursue their dreams. Youngsters aged between 7-19 and with long-term residency in Teignbridge may apply. Those seeking bursaries complete applications forms that need to be endorsed by an adult professional such as a teacher, youth leader, or drama director. Trustees evaluate the eligibility of the application and, if approved, see the young person with a parent or carer and verify the family’s financial eligibility.


ddc5960b-e487-4e05-b350-adeaf4423a8eOne recent applicant is Anna (not her real name) a talented, sixth-form age artist who successfully applied for a bursary to help pay for equipment she needs for her make-up artistry course at Exeter College. She has ambitions to apply to Bristol University and become a special effects make-up artist for film and theatre.

Her supporting  teacher statement reads:
“ Anna is a beautiful person, both inside and out, and is always keen to help others. She truly deserves this opportunity and I have no doubt that she will show you exactly what she is capable of in the months to come.”

Good luck Anna!
