The late singer's father says the course will help one child nurture their talent.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation is set to fund a prestigious performing arts scholarship at the Sylvia Young Theatre School, it's been announced.

Set to commence in September this year, the scholarship will focus on three areas: drama, singing and dance.

Amy, who died in July last year, was a former student at the stage school.

In a statement, her father Mitch Winehouse said: "As most people would know, Amy was a pupil at Sylvia Young Theatre School. This is where her talent was recognised and nurtured.

"The Amy Winehouse Foundation would like to give a child, who otherwise couldn't afford the same opportunity, the chance to realise their talents."

Sylvia Young said: "We loved Amy and we are thrilled and honoured that the Amy Winehouse Foundation is setting up this scholarship in her name to help a child who cannot afford the training to develop their talent."

The Amy Winehouse Foundation was launched in September 2011 and is designed to help young people, including those at a financial disadvantage.

Applications for the scholarship are now open.
