The aim of this small charity is to provide financial support to individuals who wish to travel abroad or in the United Kingdom to attend a conference, to pursue a research project or undertake a short course of study in the field of movement or dance.


We award annual scholarships (now renamed the Main Awards) for which applications open in November and close in January. New for 2023, we are launching the Anna Carlisle Dancer in Training Award. This is a secondary opportunity for dancers who are still in education and will open for applications in June 2023.


Artists who have travelled on a LUTSF scholarship report significant positive impact on their professional practice, enabling individuals to deepen their artistic explorations and strengthen international connections within the dance community.

LUTSF is run by our committee who currently meet bi-annually and act as the decision-making panel to determine the scholarship awards. Being a Committee Member is an entirely voluntary commitment,(committee members can claim out of pocket expenses) and we owe a great deal to our past and present supporters who in turn recognise the benefits their contributions bring to the personal and professional lives of those who receive LUTSF scholarships. We are a registered UK charity and currently undergoing a period of structural review. Since 2023, the Committee have been supported by an Administrative Assistant.
