About the Bursary

The Pendle Young Musicians Bursary was set up in 2012 to give young musicians a chance of gaining substantial funding to help them continue their musical studies. The bursary is going into it's fifth competition and in 2020 the prize fund available will be £18,500.

The bursary competition takes place every two years, and runs over a course of rounds in the form of a video entry followed by two live performances.

Since the first competition in 2012, the bursary has been continuously growing - expanding it's range to include surrounding cities, but whilst still encouraging the local musicians that are at the core of the bursary's foundation.
