The Agar Trust supports young people (8-21) resident in rural Scotland, who demonstrate exceptional musical ability and potential and wish to further their musical education.
Candidates can apply for a grant towards attendance at an educational opportunity which relates directly to their musical studies. For example this might be: a short course; Saturday music schools; a concert, event or audition; further tuition at Junior departments of music schools etc.; rehearsals of a regional or national orchestra, or band, or choir; travel to any of the above.
The Agar Trust awards grants from £100 up to £500. Applications are considered twice a year.
The decision has been made to cancel the spring awards, owing to Coronavirus and continued uncertainty about the educational events to which award holders might be travelling. It is planned to resume in the autumn and the next deadline will be 30 September 2020.
