Screen shot 2013-01-08 at 10.11.56

Milapfest and Awards for Young Musicians have joined forces to offer six bursary awards to young musicians playing Indian Music in the UK.

The awards have been developed to support young musicians struggling with the associated costs of playing an instrument, such as lessons, buying an instrument, travel and specialist courses.

Applicants must be between the age of 10 and 18 and have exceptional talent and passion for music. The awards are also given on the basis of financial need and applicants will be means tested to ensure eligibility.

The awards can cover the cost of UK based training or instrument purchase, or subsidise the cost of advanced international training.

AYM is delighted to be collaborating with Milapfest to launch our first joint Awards for talented young musicians. Both organisations are committed to enabling young people with exceptional musical potential to progress in their music making: this is a really exciting partnership that we look forward to developing in the future.’ – Hester Cockcroft, Director, Awards for Young Musicians.
