The Agar Trust supports young people (8-21) resident in rural Scotland who demonstrate exceptional musical ability and potential and wish to further their musical education beyond their local area.
While 90% of Scotland’s land mass is rural, a third of Scotland’s population lives there. There has, not surprisingly, been a concentration of services in the urban areas, but this brings challenges for young rurally-based people who wish to further their education or develop a career in music. Agar Trust award winners have to travel considerable distances to play with national orchestras, bands or choirs; or attend short courses, private tuition or auditions.
Applications are considered twice a year. The next deadline for applications will be in 26 March 2017.
