Bursaries for auditions

If you would like to apply for financial assistance to help cover your audition fee and other expenses such as travel costs to your audition, please complete the online application form (link below). You need to submit your bursary application at least two weeks before your chosen audition date to allow us sufficient time to process your application and inform you of the outcome.
