Each year, Brighton Fringe offers a series of bursaries in collaboration with various local, national and international organisations. Bursaries ensure that those who may not normally take part in Brighton Fringe can do so.

Bursaries cover the cost of event registration alongside a variety of other support in the form of monetary support, mentoring support or marketing support.

Each bursary will have a different set of criteria you are required to meet to apply, set by the bursary provider. Most bursaries require you to fill out a short application form explaining your eligibility for the bursary. If you require support to fill out the form, please contact our Artist & Venue Services Team at [email protected].

Bursaries will be offered in two waves:

  • The first wave ran from registration opening on Wednesday 11 October 2023 until Monday 20 November 2023. Announcements were made on Friday 1 December 2023.
  • The second wave ran from 11 December 2023 until Thursday 1 February. Announcements will be made on Friday 9 February 2024.

If you are awarded a bursary after you have paid your registration fee, you will be refunded in full.
