Registered Charity No:


The Choral Scholarship Fund is a registered charity which helps to fund the eighteen scholarships awarded to the Choristers of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum. Unlike many cathedrals and colleges, Tewkesbury Abbey does not have any endowment for its choristers, so the Choral Scholarship Fund is essential if the tradition of Choral Evensong on a daily basis is to survive in the Abbey.

The Choral Scholarship Fund is entirely independent of Tewkesbury Abbey, and of Dean Close Preparatory School where the Choristers receive a first class academic, musical and all-round education. To meet the rising cost of chorister scholarships and to secure the choir’s financial future, every effort is being made to approach trusts, charities, companies, grant-making bodies and individuals. If you feel you can contribute to the Choral Scholarship Fund, your help will be invaluable in helping to preserve the beauty of the daily worship in Tewkesbury Abbey.
