The MGA Foundation is a Scottish Charity (SC047592) supporting people from non-privileged backgrounds currently living in Scotland by offering financial freedom to pursue an education and training in singing, acting, dance and musical theatre.

The MGA Foundation will consider applications from individuals who wish to attend one-off, part-time or workshop educational opportunities at any reputable school within the UK. The MGA Foundation will also consider applications for funding for full-time courses at any CDET-accredited institute in the UK.

We will happily consider financial assistance for those who can demonstrate a real need, are able to contribute towards tuition fee payments, accommodation costs, travel and/or living expenses, and those who are willing to make a future commitment to support the work of the MGA Foundation.

Apply for funding

Without the MGA Foundation, I would not have been able to realise my dream of becoming a fully-trained musical theatre performer and professional dancer. I’ve been given a fabulous opportunity that would have not otherwise been available to me. I am hugely grateful for the financial assistance and first-class training I have received.


Broadening access to performing arts

The launch of the MGA Foundation builds on a commitment to financially support students on part-time and full-time performing arts courses in Scotland, while also broadening access to encompass workshops, youth theatre and part-time and full-time training opportunities across the UK.
