Universal Music UK Sound Foundation provides the following two types of awards:
The Foundation provides grants up to a total of £1,500 towards the purchase of musical instruments and/or equipment for individuals who are in full time education and Schools who require the equipment to improve their music department. They also fund courses and training opportunities for music teachers who work within schools.
If you would like to apply for funding, please complete the relevant application form in full (if you are a teacher looking for help towards the cost of training opportunities please complete the ‘individuals’ application form). Full instructions are included on the form along with the deadline for your application to be received. Please ensure you send in all relevant documentation by the deadline as incomplete/late applications will be automatically returned to you.
If you have applied before and been successful you are required to wait for two Trustee meetings (approx 12 months) to pass before you are able to re-apply. If you are in any doubt about these dates please contact the office.
The Trustees of Universal Music UK Sound Foundation have awarded £5000 per college annually as bursaries for music students. We hope to maintain a relationship with every bursary student and follow their continued musical progress beyond study.
The bursaries are distributed at each college’s discretion based on criteria provided by the Foundation so please contact the colleges direct if you wish to enquire about this bursary. (contact details are available on the website) Please note this is for fees only, if you wish to purchase an instrument and/or equipment please apply directly to the Foundation using the application form on the website.
