James McAvoy Drama Scholarships

Bafta winning and Golden Globe nominated actor James McAvoy is committed to nurturing the creative potential of young Scots who experience barriers to access and participate in drama at RCS Lifelong Learning.

James is a graduate of the BA Acting programme at RCS and Patron of the Junior Conservatoire of Drama. The Glasgow-born actor has funded the new James McAvoy Drama Scholarships to enable young people to experience the world-class drama training at RCS as he did.

The scholarship aims to support applicants who would otherwise find meeting the cost of tuition fees at RCS a barrier to accessing pre-Higher Education drama training at the Royal Conservatoire.

The application criteria is as follows:

  • The applicant must be applying for a drama short course at RCS. These courses can be found on the website and can include weekly classes for young people, drama credit rated short courses, drama specialist intensive weekends, summer schools and new company or blended learning experiences. It does not include any course where the subject specialism is dance, music, production or screen. If you would like to clarify whether the course you are interested in is eligible, please contact Lifelong Learning using our contact details below.
  • The applicant must be aged 25 or under at the time of application, and must be able to provide proof of this status.
  • The applicant must be resident in Scotland at the point of application, and must be able to provide proof of this status.

Exclusions:

  • The scholarship is intended to meet the cost of tuition fees only at RCS. The costs of travel, subsistence or accommodation are not eligible.
  • There is no restriction on the number of times you are able to apply providing the course applied for is different each time and funds permitting.

The James McAvoy Drama Scholarship has been established to help young Scots who live in challenged communities or circumstances to participate in the drama learning and teaching at RCS.

However, RCS Juniors and Lifelong Learning also benefits from the Agnes Allen Bursary scheme, which exists to support other young people and adult learners who might find affording tuition fees a barrier to participation.

Applicants to the Agnes Allen Bursary scheme can be at any age or stage in their development, from anywhere in the world and their interests can be in dance, drama, music, production or screen.

We accept applications all year round and you can find out more about the Agnes Allen Bursary here.
