Dame Darcey Bussell Genée Bursary Scheme

Financial support for Genée candidates from any country.

Created in late 2014 using funding achieved at that year’s QEII Coronation Award gala dinner, this scheme is open to any individual from any country wishing to compete in the Genée International Ballet Competition.

It ran for five years, from 2015 until 2019.

Each bursary carried a minimum value of £1,000 (or equivalent local currency), and a selection panel could elect to pay a higher bursary depending on the likely costs of travel to be incurred by the candidate in order to travel to the Genée International Ballet Competition.
