Split Infinitive’s Remit
Our top priority is supporting individual students on acting or musical theatre courses, especially those from Yorkshire or studying in the region.

After this, we may continue to support students of the performance arts, such as dancing, singing and musical instruments. Again, a Yorkshire focus would be favoured.

There is no guarantee of a grant, and we will prioritise using this criteria, whilst ensuring to keep within our strictly limited budget. Average grants will fall between £200 and £400 and are at the trustee's discretion.

We have sadly made the decision not to offer grants to organisations at this time. We are also unable to consider repeat grants.

If you have any further questions, please email us at

Our next meeting of the trustees is due to be held towards the end of June 2024. The deadline for receipt of applications is 12 noon, Monday 17th June 2024.

Application forms can be found on the
Application Forms page.

Guideline Response Times
The trustees meet quarterly so it may be up to three months before you receive a response. Dates of trustee meetings are normally towards the end of March, June, September and December, but can vary. Please ask if you need to know an exact date, and please do specify project dates in your application.

There is no fixed cut-off date but generally any applications received up to the 18th day in the month of a meeting will definitely be considered; later arrivals will be rolled over into the following quarter.

We aim to acknowledge all applications by email but this is subject to capacity. We also reserve the right to ignore unsuitable or incomplete applications.

Application decisions may be deferred if the volume is high, or for other operational reasons as the trustees think fit.
