Bursaries and Scholarships

We have a range of bursaries including fully funded places at LJC

Bursary Guidance

Bursaries are awarded to families with a total taxable household income of £50,000 or below on a first come first served basis, so we encourage all students to apply as soon as they can. 

Although not guaranteed, we may be able to offer new/additional bursaries during the year, so please apply if your circumstances change.


Our Bursary Supporters

We would like to say a special thank you to the Leeds Music Education Partnership, Leverhulme Trust, Wolfson Foundation, Other Public Charitable Donations and Leeds Conservatoire's Access Agreement for awarding funding for families with a total household taxable income below £50,000.


Leeds Music Education Partnership have funded ten awards of £500 towards LJC fees for students who live and/or study in Leeds who play instruments that are in demand in ensembles and orchestras. This funding is not awarded on financial need but is linked to the instrument played at LJC.

Eligible instruments for the academic year 2024/25 are;

Oboe, bassoon, French horn trombone, tuba, viola, cello, and double bass
