Neil Vint was a student at Chetham’s from 1984-1988, who died tragically in 1994. In his memory, his parents have established a bursary fund to help young musicians as they begin their professional career.
A total of £1000 is awarded annually to one applicant following reviews of applications by the Joint Principal and Mrs Vint.
The award is open to alumni of Chetham’s aged 20-26. Preference is usually given to students who have just left music college or university, as the funding is intended to help kickstart careers in the music industry.
Applications open during the Summer term every year.
Applications for the Neil Vint Bursary 2022 are now closed.
