The Composers’ Fund is a new opportunity which recognises the need for composers to have direct access to funding at pivotal stages in their career. It invites composers to make the case for support of any activity that would enable them to make a significant step change in their career.
Grants can be for up to £10,000 and it is anticipated that the Foundations will make 10 – 15 awards a year. The fund is open to composers with a strong track record in their field who are at a point in their career where access to funding could help move forward their career.
To be eligible for support, composers must be based in the UK and must be members of PRS for Music or in a position to join.
Deadlines occur twice a year. The next deadline is 16 October 2016.
