Royal Academy of Dramatic Art

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art is a founding affiliate of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama. It was established in 1904 and has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its training. It runs an ongoing fundraising appeal to Trusts, Foundations and philanthropic individuals in order to provide awards for students who need additional financial assistance in order to complete the training on the full time courses. Students work in excess of 36 hours per week which precludes their undertaking regular part time employment to supplement their income during term time. Students who are relocating to London are in a particularly vulnerable financial position as the full student loan does not cover the real costs of living in London. So too are students with a first degree who are ineligible for loans to pay the mandatory student fee or their term time living costs.

All donations made to the Student Scholarship/Bursary fund at RADA are allocated to students in genuine financial need. Donors should also note that the Gift Aid element of any donation paid through an appeal page for an individual RADA student is paid to the Academy's Student Hardship Fund from which any student applying for financial support through the Academy may benefit. In this way, sponsors donating through JustGiving by supporting an individual RADA student, also indirectly assist all other RADA students who apply for support through the Academy Student Hardship Fund.
