Are you a talented young musician living in rural Scotland? Then apply by September 30 to The Agar Trust, as you may be eligible for a grant.

The Agar Trust gives grants of £100 to £1,000 to support young people with their musical education and career development.

It helps them overcome the challenges they face living in rural areas, particularly travelling long distances to participate in tuition, courses, performances, rehearsals and auditions.

You must be aged between 8 and 21, show proven musical skills and potential, and live in rural Scotland.

Residency is defined by a Scottish Government map, accessible on the Trust website, www.agar-trust.org.uk and includes much of the Highlands and Islands, Argyll and Bute, Dumfries and Galloway, Borders, rural Aberdeenshire and Moray.
