The Tillett Trust annually requests a nomination from each of the main British conservatoires for an outstanding student about to enter his or her second or subsequent year of postgraduate study. These nominees are auditioned and offered study grants according to ability. All applicants are nominees and these awards are not open to independent individuals.
