The Nicholas Danby Trust was founded in 1997 in memory of the distinguished international organist and conservatoire teacher who was previously head of the organ department at the Academy. The aim of this public charitable trust is to offer a major European scholarship and also bursaries to enable young organists of exceptional talent to undertake conservatoire study outside their home traditions in Europe. The awards are therefore available to UK students for study elsewhere in Europe and to students from continental Europe for study in the UK.
