We have two funding programmes available to organisations and individuals to help support high quality music education in Cambridgeshire. There are no deadlines for application but you must submit applications at least three weeks before the proposed activity is due to start. Our programmes cover many different activities and are not prescriptive, so if you are unsure whether your activity is eligible please contact us for advice. You can also see recent awards here to get an idea of the sorts of activity we have supported in the past.

The Grant Scheme is designed to support music education projects of many different types in schools and other organisations. Further guidance can be found here.

The Access to Learning Scheme helps with the cost of instrumental tuition and related activity for individuals aged 5 to 18 who meet the criteria. Parents or carers can apply directly on behalf of their children or alternatively schools can apply on behalf of families for several pupils at once. Further guidance can be found here.

How to Apply

The application process is online and to apply you need to register on the mush website and create a profile, if you haven’t already got one. You can create a profile for an individual or an organisation and, if appropriate, you can create more than one profile. Once you have a profile you can apply for funding. You can also post news and events on the mush website to let the wider mush community know what you are up to.

Once you are registered on the site go to ‘my funding’ then ‘add a new funding application’. Choose the type of application you wish to make (grants or access to learning) then follow the onscreen instructions.
