N.D.S.O. Bursary Scheme

The Nottingham & District Society of Organists has a Bursary Scheme to provide financial assistance to young organists.

Download an application form, print off the form and complete it using black ink. When completed scan and email the form to: ndsosecretary@gmail.com

A small team from the NDSO is currently developing a new scheme to help and attract new youngsters towards taking up the pipe organ.

If you know of any youngsters who are interested in becoming organists and potentially receiving financial help towards organ lessons, music and examination fees under our bursary scheme then please do not hesitate to contact us and tell us about the person. We would be pleased to see what is possible.

We are pleased to have five students currently learning the organ and benefiting from support from our wonderful bursary scheme in 2023/24! Three of our students are pictured above after performing at the society AGM 2023 – L-R Isabelle Lawes, Christine Jiang, Ascend Jiang
