The Martin Cosgrif Memorial Bursary Award
Martin Cosgrif was a much loved performing arts teacher who transformed many young lives in his work at Accrington and Rossendale College.
When Martin passed away from Covid in 2020, his friends and family set up a fundraising page to create a bursary in his memory, wanting to honour his legacy by enabling a young person from a disadvantaged background in the North West of England to attend drama school.
Thanks to this award in fond memory of Martin, NYAT has been able to help young people from low income backgrounds in the North West of England who are in need of support to attend an accredited drama school or conservatoire. This award was used to help with shortfalls of drama school tuition fees, travel, and books & resources, or other financial barriers.
With huge thanks to the family & friends of Martin Cosgrif for their support in his honour.
