The Drake Calleja Trust came into operation on 1st September 2015 under the management of Vicky Yannoula, Head of Scholarships & Artistic Planning. Since then the Trust has completed two applications calls (2015-16 and 2016-17) and has awarded forty-two scholarships in total to exceptionally talented students of undergraduate, postgraduate and research level. The amounts awarded to these scholars.
The value of the Trust’s donations is strongly felt by all scholarship holders. Thanks to the support these talented and most worthy musicians have received they have been able to proceed with their studies in a much more meaningful and better time-managed way, pursue career-furthering activities such as participation in competitions and masterclasses, attend various auditions in the UK and internationally.
