Kathryn was awarded a prestigious Fame Academy Education Bursary worth £20,000 which will fund her opera and vocal studies at postgraduate level. There were over 950 applicants for this award and the competition was fierce at audition. The Fame Academy bursaries were set up two years ago from the profits generated from record sales and phone lines on the popular BBC series to develop outstanding new musical talent.

Kathryn was thrilled to have won this bursary which will enable her to focus on the continued development of her singing career. Kathryn is grateful to the BBC for their generous support.
