Decca Records Bursary

90th Anniversary of Decca Records Bursary to Launch in 2020

Grants of up to £2,000 will be available to schools in the UK in the new year to help young people engage with classical music.

In their 90th year, Decca Records is supporting the launch of a new Universal Music UK Sound Foundation bursary – the Decca Bursary – to give children from the UK the opportunity to experience classical music.

Decca is the biggest classical record label in the UK.

The Decca Bursary aims to inspire and encourage a new generation of classical musicians and composers. Its mission is to help children afford a classical music education, no matter their financial background.

The bursary is supported by funds raised by a team from Decca Records and Universal Music UK who scaled the heights of the UK’s three highest peaks within 24 hours.

Grants of a maximum £2,000 will be available to eligible individuals and ensembles, in need of funding for classical music lessons, instruments and courses throughout the UK.

Individuals (of school-age), teachers on their behalf, and schools will be able to submit applications.

Applications for awards will open in the new year.
