Gail Patrick Bursary

Gail Patrick was an American student at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff who died tragically in a car accident.  In celebration of her life and happy times in Cardiff, her family established a fund which, through the NAWF,  provides bursaries to young Welsh musicians to develop their musical potential.  Previous awards have helped young musicians to buy instruments, study in America and travel there to perform.


If you are a young musician under 25 years on application and living or studying in Wales you are eligible to apply for a bursary of up to £1,000.  You must be able to demonstrate that the money awarded will, in some way, further cultural links between Wales and North America.


To apply, please send an email to the Hon Sec of NAWF in Wales at or fill in this form.
