Special Appeal for the RWCMD Student Hardship Fund
The Covid crisis continues and, in response to the growing number of requests for our help, we are now launching a Special Appeal to raise urgently needed, additional contributions for our small Student Hardship Fund. As you will imagine, increased numbers of students are struggling and facing particular financial and practical challenges. It is clear that they will continue to do so over the next 6 months and into the new year and, it is only with your help that we will be able to provide them with all the financial and practical assistance they so desperately need.
Please give as generously as you can. Your contribution will make an immediate, direct and significant difference to what we can do to help our students to come through this and to fulfil their extraordinary potential and to flourish. THANK YOU.
The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is Wales’ national conservatoire and was named as a Royal College in 2002, three years after HRH The Prince of Wales became the College’s Patron in 1999.
We rank highly in the UK and are widely recognised for excellent training and for the preparedness of our graduates to work in the performing arts. We now train over 700 students in drama and music each year, within a vibrant and popular centre for the creative arts, which attracts audiences of around 60,000 annually. This offers our students beautiful world-class facilities and a professional environment from which to work and to perform to the public.
The Development Department raises money to:
- Support a diverse and engaging student performance programme which gives students professional performance experience in our own beautiful facilities but also across Wales, the UK and internationally
- Provide opportunities for students to work with world renowned international artists
- Provide scholarships and bursaries to those in financial hardship and to the most talented students
