Funding – Bursary Scheme

Leith School of Art is an independent institution and does not receive state or public funding. The School is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. We are committed to providing access to our courses from people of all backgrounds, experience and aspiration.

We believe in supporting students as much as possible, and this includes financial support. With this in mind we have a Bursary Scheme, which is funded from our supporters and a wide range of trusts and foundations.

Should you wish to be considered for a bursary you must first apply and be accepted on a year-long course. Normally the maximum amount awarded is up to 50% of the tuition fees but can be more in exceptional circumstances.

There is no deadline for submitting your application but you are strongly advised to complete and return at your earliest convenience as there is a limited amount of funding available.  

If you have any questions, or would like further details about the Bursary Scheme please contact the School.

Please note students are not eligible for state funding or student loans due to the School’s independent status. There may be other funding sources available, some sources can be found on our funding page.
