Instrumental soloists between the ages of 15 and 20 who are resident in the UK and have demonstrated both exceptional talent and achievement may apply at any time of the year for financial assistance towards travelling expenses to attend national or international competitions, masterclasses within the UK or abroad and specific assistance in the case of hardship.

To apply please complete the application form, attaching information requested in the form and send it with your recent recordings (URL to online recordings, or CD) and two supporting references to the Hattori Foundation.
All correspondence and completed application forms and references should be sent to:
