The majority of grants are for musical performances, and applications can be made by the individual performers or promoters. Applications are also considered by those who are requesting a grant to support their music research.
Grant applications for research can only be considered for postgraduate or PHD level researchers or equivalent and cannot include the researcher’s living costs; a specific outline of the nature of the research and how the grant would be used needs to be provided.

The size of the grant ranges from £200 to £5,000.
