The Tom Eveson Bursary


We are really pleased to be able to offer this Tom Eveson bursary fund! It’s open to any young musician aged up to and including 25 (as of 31 Dec 2021) who is finding it challenging to progress musically because of the costs involved. The bursary is for a sum of £1,000, plus the young musician awarded the bursary will have the option of performing in a special Young Artists Showcase concert here at St George’s on 8 March 2022. Find out about Tom Eveson here. 

Here is the criteria for applying:

1. The Tom Eveson Bursary Fund exists to support the development of young musicians within the City and County of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire, whose opportunities are limited due to financial hardship. Grants will be given to help further musical learning.

2. It is possible to apply on behalf of another individual, or to apply for yourself.

3. Applicants must have an address in one of the above areas at the time of application – for those studying away from home, a parent or carer’s address will be acceptable.

5. The Trustees will award a sum of £1,000 as the ‘Tom Eveson Bursary Award’.

6. Applications will be considered for/from young musicians aged up to and including 25 years old as of 31 December 2021. Judging criteria will take into consideration financial details, plus the musical potential and commitment of the candidate.
