The McDowell Family Award is a prize generously donated by Elizabeth McDowell in memory of her grandmother, father and uncle; celebrated musicians who performed and recorded across Northern Ireland, Cardiff and the Westcountry and who so inspired her and her twin brother in their own musical endeavours.
The substantial award will cover full fees and travel for a young singer and/or pianist, educated in a UK state school, to attend the course each year.
Please send a bursary letter with your application form, explaining your circumstances and why you would be a suitable candidate for this award, by the advanced application deadline of Fri 10th April 2020.
