Need help with musical costs? Apply to AYM now for up to £2,000

We're delighted to once again be welcoming applications to our annual Awards programme. Read on to find out how to make an application for funding and how to help us spread the word so that as many eligible young musicians as possible know about the opportunity.

2019 annual Awards programme

Each year we offer up to £100,000 in grants to exceptional young musicians aged 5-17 in need of financial support. Award winners receive flexible funding of up to £2,000 towards musical costs (like tuition, instrument costs or travel) plus individual support to cater to personal circumstances. This could be anything from mentoring to musical workshops, the chance to observe professional musicians, free tickets to concerts and performance opportunities.

Our key criteria are musical talent and financial need. Whatever genre the young musician plays, they can evidence their eligibility without having to have taken formal exams.

Wondering how to find out if a young person is eligible, what's involved in applying, when you'll hear the outcome of your application or anything else about the process?
