Sponsor a Scholar

 Scholarship Sponsors pledge £4,000 (£1000 per year for four years), which covers a full Scholarship programme for one child.

We aim to award upwards of 50 4-year Scholarships every year. However, the number of young musicians we can support is entirely driven by the amount of financial support we receive. By becoming a Scholarship Sponsor you will be helping us to expand this extremely successful programme.


For each year of your commitment we will pair you with one Scholar (per £4,000 pledged) and we will provide you with the following:

  • Scholar’s first name, age, borough, and instrument being learned.

  • An invitation to attend your Scholar’s Awards Celebration at City Hall (in September at the beginning of their award).

  • Twice yearly progress reports.

  • Invitation to the Spring Scholars’ Playing Day, and your scholars’ graduation at the end of their four years, and other performances where applicable.

  • Our quarterly London Music Fund e-newsletter.

  • A copy of our bi-annual Scholars’ Magazine, Tempo!, specifically for Scholarship sponsors.

  • An annual thank you letter from the Scholar you are supporting.
  • Acknowledgement on our website and in our Impact Report.
