Application for Co. LYT Bursary : PDF

 

Each year an allocation is provided to youth theatre members, by the committee under its scheme of assistance, for subscription fee by needy students. 

The grant allocation for a term is based on information about the number of needy students requesting assistance in that term.

The amount of assistance to individual students may be fixed at the discretion of the Committee having regard to the total and relative levels of need and available resources.

The scheme only applies to “needy pupils” in the County Limerick Youth Theatre
