Please read carefully the Scholarship and Bursaries booklet which describes the Scholarships available with our specific entry criteria for each award.
When we receive this completed form we will seek a report from the candidate's school, notifying them of the candidate's application for a Stowe Scholarship and asking for any information relevant to the Scholarship considerations.
: successful Academic Scholars would normally be expeccted to gain mostly A*s or the points equivalent in all their subjects at GCSE.
candidates will be required to bring with them a portfolio of recent work for assessment. This should contain a broad selection of work in whichever field of Art has been studied. Two-dimensional work need not be mounted. Photographs or slides of three-dimensional work are preferred. Particular attention will be paid to good objective drawing.
as a guide we would expect a good Music Scholar to be studying at the equivalent of Grade Six or above on one instrument and be of a good standard on a second instrument or voice. We place great emphasis on a candidate's ability to be an active, enthusiastic and dedicated member of the Department. Instruments which are rare (e.g. Bassoon, Double Bass, Viola) may attract a scholarship at a slightly lower level of attainment. The Music School offers free consultation lessons for Scholarship candidates. Please contact Sarah Searle
to arrange a consultation lesson. NB all other Scholarship application issues should be directed to the Admissions Office.
Candidates will have an audition on the Entry Day and should bring their instruments with them.
