Dear Parents/ Guardians,
The Perth and Kinross Music Foundation is a registered charity and aims to financially support young musicians who attend school in Perth and Kinross. If you are on low income and in receipt of Working Tax Credits, high Child Tax Credits or have very exceptional circumstances we may be able to provide some financial assistance to you.
This year, if you wish to apply for financial assistance with Tuition and/or Central Group Fees for the academic session 2015-16, please complete the PKMF Application Form 2015-16 and send it with photocopied evidence of any Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit or any other awards or income relevant to the tax year 2015-16, to the Foundation Secretary at the address stated on the form. The Trustees will consider all applications sympathetically and will treat each case individually and confidentially.
The Foundation are currently in the process of contacting present, and potential, sponsors and supporters to raise funds for the academic year 2015-16. Please be advised that decisions regarding assistance may not take place until much later in the academic year. Meantime, if you have submitted an application for assistance to us and you receive an invoice from Perth and Kinross Council, please let the Council know that you have written to us and are awaiting a decision. You may choose to make arrangements with the Council for payment of Fees. If you are then awarded assistance, any payments you have made will be refunded up to the amount of assistance awarded.
Also, please be advised that a new application for assistance must be made to the Foundation each academic year.
