Music Fellowships

Music Fellowships

Launching in August 2012, the Music Fellowships scheme aims to support individuals through the early stages of their music careers; helping them to establish themselves in the professional world through bespoke placements within existing music organisations.

Through this scheme, we hope to increase the Fellows’ skills through training and development opportunities tailored to the individual, to raise their aspirations, and to encourage collaboration.

Rather than awarding grants directly to individuals themselves, we are looking for applications from music companies, organisations, venues and festivals from across the UK to host a Fellow.

You can download an example application form to help you get started but please do not submit this version to us. All applications should be submitted using the online system.

This grant is now closed.
