Application guidelines


Applications are only accepted by using the Application Form: download here. Applications are welcome from:


  • Small organisations or projects that require a grant or grants to support the public-performance costs of a concert, a recital, ballet, opera, or orchestral work, particularly if it is by Sergei Prokofiev. Applications are particularly welcome for the performance of lesser known or performed pieces of music.

  • To support small music festivals particularly where Prokofiev music/and or other Russian classical music will be performed.

  • To support the provision of conferences, exhibitions or lectures and possibly other educational activities, particularly if it is related to the music and life of Sergei Prokofiev.

  • To support the publishing and distribution of books, pamphlets, journals, films, recordings and instructional matter on any media, particularly if it is in relation to the music and life of Sergei Prokofiev.

  • Applicants and those applying on behalf of the performers should be over 18.

The trust does not make grants for:

  • Vocal or instrumental tuition unless part of preparing for a public performance.

  • Managing agents and commercial promoters.

  • Commissions purely for youth or children’s ensembles.

  • Applications from non-professional performers/performances (concerts by undergraduate university and conservatoire orchestras or music groups will only be considered in exceptional circumstances).

  • Orchestras or large organisations, unless a request for a grant forms part of the funding for work that would otherwise not be able to be performed without individual grants.

This year we are also welcoming applications for the Rupert Prokofiev Award – more information here. 

The trust committee decision-making process is confidential and the reasons for decisions cannot be disclosed. Grants are given once a year, successful applicants notified by 15 December each year. The deadline for submissions for this year is the extended date of 25 November 2024
