Scholarships and Prizes

Mountview firmly believes that to fill the creative arts with talent reflective of our world today we have to support those who can least afford to train. We are committed to helping students navigate the challenges of living and studying in London, ensuring that talent and potential are the only criteria for entry. Yet we are some way short of offering comprehensive support to all students in need and more investment is vitally needed.


If you share our passion for helping artists realise their potential, we’d love to talk more. A donation of £5,000 or more per year could establish a named scholarship and change the course of a young person’s life. Alternatively, you can make a one-off or regular donation to the Judi Dench Fund for Access to Drama Training which supports a range of initiatives, including scholarships, which break down barriers to drama training.


Establishing a Prize at Mountview can be a deeply personal way of remembering or celebrating a loved one. Each year, we work with a small group of donors to establish awards which recognise current and graduating students who not only have extraordinary talent and potential, but have also applied themselves fully to their craft and achieved outstanding results. Alongside recognition and prestige, these prizes also provide financial support to students and graduates at a vital point in their development.

If you would like to find out more about establishing a Scholarship or Prize, please get in touch with Laura Gabe, Senior Development Manager, to discuss further.
