FST Bursaries aim to nurture the development of professionals working within the performing arts in Scotland by supporting an attachment to an established theatre, dance or opera company, venue or design team in the UK or internationally. The objectives are to develop the applicant’s skills and experience as a professional performing arts practitioner, and to encourage the adoption of best practice.    

In the past, FST awarded two types of bursaries: Assistant Director (which also included Assistant Choreographer & Assistant Movement Director) and Producer Placement. However, we recognised that in order to aid equality within the sector there is a need to broaden development opportunities. Therefore, we have adjusted the Producer/Director bursaries to be more inclusive of the diverse range of vital roles which exist within the sector.  

The kind of roles that are now included within the bursary would be inclusive of but not limited to:  

  • producing 
  • directing 
  • design 
  • choreography/movement 
  • sound 
  • technical/production 
  • creative learning 
  • artistic development 

It would be very helpful if you can send any questions in advance to fiona.mccurdy@scottishtheatre.org so that we can make sure that we can give you the most robust answer.
