Neil Vint Bursary Fund

The Neil Vint Bursary 2023 is now open for applications.

Each year, the bursary offers one former Chetham’s student the chance to kick start their career in the music industry, with the award of £1,000 in funding.

The funding is available to former students of Chetham’s, aged between 20 and 26.

Preference will usually be given to students who have recently left music college or university.

Neil Vint, a student at Chetham’s School of Music from 1984-1988, died tragically in 1994. In his memory, his parents have established the Bursary Fund to help young musicians as they begin their professional career.

How to apply

Former Chetham’s students can apply in writing by emailing a letter of application, outlining why they are suitable for the award and how the funds would be used.

Applications should be sent to Lesley Haslam, PA to the Joint Principal, by email at by 30 June 2023. 

Applicants should include details of their education and professional career, and tell us why they would find the Bursary useful.

Good luck!
