Music and arts scholarships

Are you a talented musician, writer, performer or artist? Do you want to develop your skills further? Would you like a cash award and free tuition or mentoring? Then our Music and Arts Scholarships could be just the thing for you!

Every year we award up to nine scholarships across a range of art forms:

  • Music (4 x instrumental and 1 x vocal)
  • Performing arts
  • Creative writing and spoken word
  • Multi-media (including photography, painting, digital art, film, video and sound production)

Each scholarship winner is awarded a £200 cash prize and a tailored package of tuition or mentoring to develop their skills and knowledge further. There are also opportunities to showcase your talents during your scholarship year with performances at University events.

These scholarships are open to any student at Loughborough University and Loughborough University London including postgraduates.

The deadline for 2019/20 applications has now passed. For more information on each scholarship, download the relevant form below.

You need to be able to demonstrate ability, passion and commitment to your chosen art form to be in with a chance of being selected for a scholarship.

Scholarship winners join our student creative team and will contribute to the creative life of the university through delivering and participating in events which showcase the best of our student talent.

The ambition of the scholarships is to support extra-curricular activity. Therefore, the scholarships are not open to students whose degree directly relates to the artform in which the scholarship is offered. If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible, please email for clarification. The Creative Writing / Spoken Word scholarship is open to students studying English but not those studying for an MA in Creative Writing.
