Morse-Boycott Bursary Fund

The Morse-Boycott Fund was founded in 1932, originally as a parochial choir school, but from 1935 to 1970 served the Church at large. It now takes the form of bursaries for boys at Cathedral choir schools which are funded entirely by the capital raised from donations and legacies. The trustees are the Dean and Chapter of Chichester and they meet each March to review applications and award bursaries.  Applications should be sent in by the end of January/beginning of February for consideration of a bursary to commence in September of the same year.

The Traditional Choir Trust

The Traditional Choir Trust was started in 2002 by Dr John Sanders in Gloucester who formed a group of Trustees to run the charity but is now administered by the Communar of Chichester Cathedral. This charitable fund is still growing but is now able to offer bursaries to boy choristers in a Cathedral choir school in a similar way to the Morse-Boycott bursaries. The Trustees meet each March to review applications and award bursaries.  Applications should be sent in by the end of January/beginning of February for consideration of a bursary to commence in September of the same year.
