It's getting to that time of year when we share our congratulations to everyone who has gained an admission to their respective Performing Arts schools or colleges! For many this news may be sweet and sour: 'I've got in, but how can I stay in?' The pressure of paying tuition fees is arguably at an all-time high and can diminish concentration on the main goal at hand - to achieve your dreams.

Here at The Fund we are not currently covering the costs of tuition fees, but we thought we could give you some pointers by providing a few links to grant-making organisations and search sites that could potentially assist in your financial situations. Please find further information by clicking on the links below:

Dance and Drama Awards
A government-funded scholarship awarded through a select number of schools to students demonstrating a high standard of talent and skills

The Fenton Arts Trust
Providing grants and scholarships each year for between 25 and 30 artists just starting out in their careers

The South Square Trust
For individuals wanting to study the Arts, applications are currently closed but will open again between January and April 2013

For a more general search into funding organisations, try out:
Funding Central
A search engine with access to numerous funding organisations details and other financial resources

If you're not considering applying to a school or college this year but may do in the future, take a look at previous winner Chris Cook's blog on tips for auditioning here
