Information about funding available:
1. Munster Trust Study Awards
Open to instrumentalists and singers who are looking for support for postgraduate jazz or classical music performance-based study as well as to composers wishing to undertake postgraduate study. If you are an exceptional jazz student, you can also apply for funding towards your final year of a performance-based jazz undergraduate course – this extension applies to jazz musicians only.
2. Instrument Purchase Loans
Open to young artists who received funding from the Trust towards their studies and who have completed their studies and are either working in the music profession or looking to enter the profession.
3. The Stephen Oliver Award
The award is made biennially (next award 2023) for a work which has been or is in the process of being written for music theatre, to assist with the cost of bringing it to performance. Please contact the Trust Secretary if you are interested in applying.
