Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund

The Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund supports work initiated by recent graduates to develop projects beyond the college. This might include productions, research, further training, developing services such as websites, apps or other creative or artistic ventures. This fund is not restricted to performance related projects.

The 2015 application round is now open.

Applications are open to any Rose Bruford College alumni who graduated between 2011 and 2015 or groups / companies with at least one Rose Bruford College Graduate.Previous recipients are not eligible to apply. Previously unsuccessful alumni can apply again for the same, or a different project.


You may apply for a grant of up to £1,000 which can provide a maximum of 50% of the total project budget. It must be matched with additional outside investment.

(A Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund grant can provide a maximum of 50% of the total project budget up to a maximum award of £1,000. The grant must be matched by additional funds from other sources, 80% of this investment must be cash and up to 20% of this investment can be in-kind support. The cash investment could be made up of contributions from yourselves, family or friends, or awards and sponsorship from other organisations or grant making bodies.

For a project that has a budget of £2,000, you could apply for a Rose Bruford grant of £1,000. The additional funds required will need to be a minimum of £800 of cash investment and up to £200 of in-kind support.

You need not have the matched funds in place at the time you make your application to the Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund. However the Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund grant will not be awarded unless you have received the additional investment and can verify with evidence.)


Please download our application form and template production budget spreadsheet (non-production projects will still need to provide a detailed budget although this template will not be suitable). We suggest that you also download this guidance that provides some advice about applying for any funds, including the Jubilee Fund.


The closing date for applications is noon, Friday 15th May 2015.

Please send your application to Andrew Scanlan, Head of Development, Rose Bruford College, Burnt Oak Lane, Sidcup, DA15 9DF, or email your application to


The money used for the Jubilee Fund was donated by the Rose Bruford Memorial Trust, to commemorate the College’s 60th anniversary. We are grateful to them for enabling us to establish this much needed source of funding for new graduates in pursuit of career enhancing opportunities
