These bursaries will be carried forward, enabling the recipients to attend in 2021. Trustees hope to be able to award further bursaries for the 2021 course in April 2021. CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATION - 19th MARCH 2021.

Are you between the ages of 15 and 24 and passionate about the flute?


Young players grow in confidence after spending a week with the outstanding teachers at the Oxford Flute Summer School. They also benefit from spending time with other enthusiastic flautists. However, some find it hard to pay the fees. The Bursary Fund is here to help.

Bursaries are awarded each year which cover the course fees and accommodation. Sometimes part bursaries are given.


If you have the potential talent to pursue a career in music but lack the finances to attend the Oxford Flute Summer School, then please consider applying for a bursary.
