The Earn Your Stripes Bursary @Music Venue Trust

Music Venue Trust is delighted to launch another initiative to support grassroots music venues to give young people opportunities to be part of the live music team at your local venue.

The Earn Your Stripes Bursary, funded by Red Stripe and administered by MVT, will enable 50 young people to be placed in internships ranging from lighting assistant and promoter to sound engineer at one of the hundreds of small venues across the UK.

50 bursaries of up to £200 each are available to enable venues to support a short term internship in sound, lighting, marketing, promotion, booking or any other aspect of their live music offer.

To access a bursary, simply write to Music Venue Trust at with a short description of how you will use the £200 to support an opportunity for a young person to be involved at your venue.

You can use the money to support you to create an internship position, or directly pay a young person for hours, or whatever you choose.
