Number 8 Offers Bursary to Arts Students!

Number 8 Offers Bursary to Arts Students

Number 8 is calling for applications for the 2016 ‘Ray Steadman Bursary’. The bursary is awarded each year to a student who is going on to pursue further study in the arts. The successful applicant will be awarded £300 to help cover the costs of books and course materials in their first year of further or higher education in subjects such as drama, music or art.  It is open to anyone whose home is in the WR10 postcode area.


The bursary is in the name of Ray Steadman MBE, one of the original founders of Number 8 who sadly passed away in 2008. Ray was a great supporter of the arts and initiatives to encourage young people to take part in arts activity.


Applicants must be planning to embark upon their first year of a further or higher education course in an ‘arts’ subject in 2016.  This could be drama, music, art or a similar subject area.  To apply for a bursary young people should obtain an application form from Number 8 Box Office or download it from www.number8.org and return the completed form to Number 8 by 10 a.m. on the 8 September 2016
