bursary fund

Funded places in PACE youth theatre and fest programmes.

The PACE Youth Theatre Bursary Fund has been established to enable young people who would benefit from PACE’s youth arts programme and find themselves in financially challenging circumstances to take part in youth theatre activities.

The fund is supported by generous donations from parents, businesses and the local community and supported by Renfrewshire Council. Evidence of your current financial status and a statement from a referee are required when applying.

A limited number of bursary places are available.

A full bursary includes:

  • A fully funded place at PACE Youth Theatre for one year
  • A fully funded place on two one-week events during school holiday festival events (subject to availability)
  • A PACE t-shirt and casting directory membership

PACE will also be offering a limited number of concessionary memberships at 50% discount to those in receipt of:

  • Free School Meals (P4+)
  • Universal Credit
  • Child tax credits (below income threshold)
  • Working tax credit
  • Income Support
  • Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Employment and support allowance (income related)
  • Personal independent payment
  • Disability Allowance for children
  • Incapacity Benefits

Concessionary places may only be available for certain group times, depending on availability. Bursaries and concession rates are discretionary and are considered on a case by case basis.  We will also consider individual specific circumstances. If you are not in receipt of any of the benefits above but believe you may qualify for a full or partial concessionary place please get in touch.
