The Session 2020 scholarships

January 10-12th 2020

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 10-12), 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 perform a show for charity and provide two forms of documentation of the show. The charity show must take place from 30th May - 1st November 2019. There must be no financial remuneration for the applicant. Accepted documentation includes a letter of appreciation on the charity organization’s letterhead, a press clipping about the event stating the date, name of performer, and name of charity. As a second form of documentation, you must provide photographic evidence captured during the show or immediately following. By submitting this documentation, applicants are also giving consent for these letters and photos to be projected during the convention and published on the Vanishing Inc. website.

• 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 January 1st 2020 to apply. Closing date for applications is November 1st 2019. Applications after that date cannot be accepted.
