The Amy Winehouse Foundation – a charity established soon after the singer passed away last year – has teamed up with the Sylvia Young Theatre School to offer an exclusive scholarship.

Amy Winehouse was a student at the London-based school – one of the UK’s best known theatre schools – in the mid-1990s.

According to the Foundation: "Applicants will be grouped according to age, with auditions being split into three vocational subjects as part of a Workshop Session. These subjects are Drama, Singing and Dance. Applicants will need to complete an online registration form, with a registered payment of £5 per applicant – to cover administration costs for the school – required during the registration process.

“The first round of auditions will take place on Saturday April 21 and Sunday April 22, with a Recall audition, should the applicant be selected to attend, occurring on Sunday April 29. A Final audition, for those lucky few to get this far, will be held on Wednesday May 2.

“The Amy Winehouse Foundation has been set up in part to help those who are financially disadvantaged. This scholarship would therefore enable such a person the chance to join this prestigious school.”
