Bursaries and Scholarships
Oxford Cello School Bursaries
Every year the Oxford Cello School awards several bursaries allocated solely on the basis of financial means.
9 bursaries are available, 3 for £300, 3 for £200 and 3 for £100.
We invite parents who have already submitted an application form to apply for one of these bursaries if they have genuine financial difficulties regarding the payment of fees.
To apply please submit a request by email and a separate bursary application form will be sent. Bursaries may be awarded to students on any of our courses except for students attending the Exam Booster Course.
