How to apply
You will need to complete an application form in full. Someone else may help you do this, e.g. your teacher, social worker, mentor, parent or if you prefer they can complete the form on your behalf. If someone completes the form for you they will be known as your representative and will need to sign the form too.
Please note your representative cannot be someone who will directly benefit from your grant should you be succesful.

Please note due to original signatures being required, applications can only be received by post.
If you have difficulty completing application forms, we will accept an alternative method of application. This can be a cassette or video recording whereby you speak your answers to the questions on the application form instead.
If you would like to send us any additional information, which demonstrates the talent you wish to develop please do so. e.g. should you wish to attend a filmmaking workshop or take up drama lessons you could submit a short film, to demonstrate your potential, or if you are applying for art materials you could submit a painting to demonstrate your talent.
To help us make responsible decisions we will need you to provide the names of two individuals (not relatives) who have a professional relationship with you and who are willing to act as referees for your application. One of these people may also be your representative (the person who completed the form on your behalf). We would ask that these people are willing to support your application and help you to make the most of the opportunity that you are seeking funding for. They too will need to sign the application form. In exceptional circumstances we will accept one referee.
Your referees will need to be willing to help you source the information required for your application, e.g. where and when your desired opportunity will take place, how much it will cost and how long it will last. It is important that you and your referees are satisfied with the suitability and quality of the opportunity and the credibility of anyone associated with it.
