Trinity Laban announces new international music scholarship4:23, 3rd October 2019
London conservatoire Trinity Laban has today (Thursday 3 October 2019) announced its new international scholarship, the Bagri Foundation Scholarship.
The new scholarship will provide an award of £24,000 to a talented young musician from Asia, enabling them to undertake two years of postgraduate training at Trinity Laban’s Faculty of Music from September 2020.
Supported by the Bagri Foundation – an organisation that works collaboratively across artistic disciplines to raise the visibility of artists from across Asia and those inspired by the continent – the gift is part of the foundation’s Springboard strand of activity, encouraging emerging artists to develop their work, particularly those who need extra support.
Trinity Laban’s director of music Havilland Willshire comments: ‘I’m thrilled to announce this gift from the Bagri Foundation. The new scholarship furthers Trinity Laban’s commitment to widen access for talented and dedicated international students and reinforces the conservatoire’s role as a leader for international development in arts education and innovation.’
Alka Bagri, trustee of the Bagri Foundation, says: ‘Through the work of the foundation, we aim to make a real impact on the lives of the artists we support. We believe that Trinity Laban will provide an innovative and inspiring environment within which emerging talent from Asia can thrive and we are very proud to support this new scholarship.’
