The Session 2023 scholarships

January 13th - 15th 2023

Scholarships for Young Magicians

Young magicians

We LOVE helping young magicians. It's one of our core values at Vanishing Inc. And we've had tremendous success with our youth program at our event, Magifest. Now we're bringing it to the UK. This means that if you're a magician 18 or younger by the convention dates (January 13th - 15th 2023), you can apply below.

Our thinking is this: EVERY young magician who wishes to improve and learn about the craft should have an opportunity to do so, regardless of their financial position. So we're granting this group of young magicians the chance to do just that. We realize that The Session is a life-changing experience to learn from some of the finest magicians in the world, and we want to share that with the UK's most enthusiastic young magicians.

How to apply for a scholarship

To qualify for the scholarship, every applicant must write a short essay (500-1000 words please) on the following topic:

How has the Pandemic Changed Your Perception of Magic?
This virus has disrupted every aspect of magic, but it's important to us that young magicians change as the world changes. There has never been a better opportunity to sharpen skills, work on new material, create great magic, and share magic through new mediums. How do you plan to do this? What lessons have you learned? Why is magic important? Choose a focus and write about your passion.

• These recipients will receive a full scholarship for themselves and one parent (note: for legal reasons the guardian MUST be a relative) to attend the The Session for FREE.

• You must be under eighteen on July 1st 2022 to apply. Closing date for applications is June 1st 2022. Applications after that date cannot be accepted.
