The West Wight Arts Association has a long tradition of promoting outstanding young classical musicians, who perform at its monthly recitals.

In order to encourage talented local music students, who aspire to such excellence but need financial support to further their studies, a sum has been set aside to provide Bursaries for young Islanders aged between 11 and 18 years.

If you would like to apply for the Bursary, please read the points below and download the application form.
