foundation  /faʊnˈdeɪ.ʃən/  n.
An organisation that has been created in order to provide money for a particular group of people in need of help or for a particular type of study

What could we help you with?

If you can demonstrate a financial need then we can consider helping you financially to attend a variety of courses and performing arts opportunities within the UK. These may include:

  • Youth theatre projects
  • Summer schools and holiday camps
  • One-off workshops
  • Part-time courses
  • Full-time courses (CDMT-accredited)

Funding periods

Our funding period for 2020-21 has now closed and we are not accepting applications.

Are you eligible?

To be eligible for financial assistance from the MGA Foundation you must be…

  • living in Scotland at the time of application
  • able to demonstrate a genuine financial need
  • willing to attend an audition and interview
  • demonstrate a potential to excel within the performing arts
  • able and willing for us to contact and request a reference from your proposed training provider
  • willing to commit to supporting the work of the MGA Foundation throughout your future career

The funding allowed me to train for three years and learn the trade that I love. I am now working my fourth professional job since graduating. Had I not received funding, I wouldn’t be where I am today and may not have trained at all – because it was simply too expensive.
