As part of Imelda Staunton's patronage of Urban Stage, we offer up to 4 scholarships a year to students who have difficulties in affording the course fees. Anyone can apply for the scholarship, whether new or existing students. An application form for the scholarship must be completed before the stated deadline, outlining the reasons for applying for the scholarship and offering any proof that may be required.
If there are more than 4 applicants for the scholarship in any given year, all applicants will be offered an audition and interview to decide on those who will receive the scholarship.
Anyone who has a scholarship, and wishes to continue it for another year, must re-apply along with any new potential candidates.
All successful applicants are expected to maintain a high standard of commitment and dedication to the work at Urban Stage for the period of the scholarship.
The scholarship lasts for 1 year and runs from September - July. The deadine for applications is midday on July 13th each year.
