Piobaireachd Society Bursary 2019 - Applications Invited

The Piobaireachd Society is once again offering a bursary to young pipers to receive a week of tuition at The National Piping Centre in Glasgow. 

The bursary aims to encourage young pipers who do not have easy access to a piobaireachd teacher to learn piobaireachd. Previous successful candidates have been very positive about their experience of a week of expert tuition focusing on piobaireachd sponsored by the Piobaireachd Society.

The successful applicant will get one week of free piobaireachd tuition at the National Piping Centre and help with accommodation and travel expenses if required. Candidates should be between 14 and 18 and preference will be given to those who live outside the central belt of Scotland

The closing date for applications is now Friday 3rd May. All tuition fees will be covered by the bursary. Some travel and accommodation expenses may be considered for refund.
