London’s Creative Conservatoire is delighted to announce the new Bagri Foundation Scholarship, an award of £24,000 which will enable a talented young musician from Asia to undertake two years of postgraduate training at Trinity Laban’s Faculty of Music from September 2020.

Supported by the Bagri Foundation, the new scholarship will provide an opportunity for an aspiring vocalist, composer or instrumentalist who would not otherwise be able to study in the UK without financial support. The Bagri Foundation scholar will have the chance to undertake two years of postgraduate study within the inspiring environment of the internationally celebrated Conservatoire.

Established in 1990, the Bagri Foundation works collaboratively across artistic disciplines to engage and inspire, raising the visibility of artists and experts from across Asia and those inspired by the continent.

The gift of £24,000 is part of the Bagri Foundation’s Springboard strand of activity which encourages emerging artists to develop their work, especially those who need extra support to raise their level of artistic practice.

Trinity Laban’s Director of Music, Havilland Willshire comments:

“I’m thrilled to announce this gift from the Bagri Foundation. The new scholarship furthers Trinity Laban’s commitment to widen access for talented and dedicated international students and reinforces the Conservatoire’s role as a leader for international development in arts education and innovation.”

Alka Bagri, Trustee of the Bagri Foundation says:

Through the work of the Foundation, we aim to make a real impact on the lives of the artists we support. We believe that Trinity Laban will provide an innovative and inspiring environment within which emerging talent from Asia can thrive and we are very proud to support this new Scholarship.”
