The value of all awards is subject to means test. Junior Academy is very grateful to donors and benefactors whose assistance has greatly facilitated the implementation of our plans: these benefactors include the Leverhulme Trust, the Wolfson Foundation, Musicians Benevolent Fund, Susan Lawrence Travel Bursary Fund, Julian Bream Trust Scholarships, Benslow Musical Instrument Loan Scheme, Department of Education Music and Dance Scheme (MDS), ABRSM and various anonymous benefactors.

Junior Academy is supported by the Music and Dance Scheme ‘Access to Excellence’ programme. The aim of the scheme is ‘to help identify, and assist, children with exceptional potential, regardless of their personal circumstances, to benefit from world-class specialist training as part of a broad and balanced education, which will enable them, if they choose, to proceed towards self-sustaining careers in music and dance’.
