We want to ensure as many children, young people and adult learners as possible can access the performing and production arts education that is offered through Short Courses and the Junior Conservatoire at RCS.

We offer some financial support to our applicants through the Agnes Allan Bursary which anyone, regardless of age, stage or level of ability, can apply for. The bursary support can be used towards tuition fees for any dance, drama, music, production or screen short course, whether it is a one-day or weekend course, a summer school, credit-rated short course or evening course.

Deadlines for applications to the Agnes Allan Bursary in 2019 are:

Thurs 30 May 2019
Thurs 4 July 2019
Thurs 5 September 2019

The James McAvoy Drama Scholarships are available to support young people (aged 25 or under) residing in Scotland, regardless of level of ability, to access RCS drama evening and weekend courses, summer schools, credit-rated short courses or blended learning experiences.

Deadlines for applications to the James McAvoy Scholarship in 2019 are:

Thurs 30 May 2019
Thurs 4 July 2019
Thurs 5 September 2019

For promising theatre and screen practitioners, we encourage you to apply for the Drama at 60 Scholarship. This scholarship is specifically for people who want to develop their skills with the Conservatoire and are considering further study or a career in the performing or production arts in the future. Applications for this scholarship are currently closed and will reopen for 2019 in the Spring.
