We believe that talent and potential should be the only requirements for entry, and that a person’s circumstances should never prevent them from embarking on a successful career in theatre. Every year, Mountview awards a range of scholarships and bursaries to support students with the costs of study.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of talent, potential and financial need and designed to ensure that cost is not a barrier to study. Mountview’s scholarships are generously provided by a variety of supporters including the Leverhulme Trust, The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, Elaine Paige OBE, Crossroads Live Ltd, The Champniss Foundation, The Christina Smith Foundation, Jamie Lonsdale and many more.
Each year we invite new and returning students to apply for scholarship support through a designed application process which opens in January each year. Students that have received offers will be notified when the application is open.
Once scholarship applications have been received the Scholarships and Awards Panel meet twice a year to review and award support. Scholarships awarded will be a contribution towards fees are therefore are unlikely to cover full tuition fees.
The amount of scholarship funding available varies each year and are sought after among the students so we encourage students to seek other funding opportunities as well (please see below for tips!). Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis therefore continuing or returning students should apply for funding each year.
