MBF Young Talent Awards
The MBF Young Talent Awards are an important source of funding for young musicians and are made to those with a high level of musical achievement who are in financial need.
In 2008, the MBF distributed almost £90,000 through this scheme to more than 100 musically gifted young people with awards ranging from £200 to £1,000.
Awards are offered to those who will be under 18 years of age on 1 September in the year of application towards one of the following i) the cost of buying an instrument ii) music lessons with a private teacher iii) fees for a Saturday music centre iv) travel expenses to attend a Saturday music centre.
Awards are also offered to those who are aged 18 and about to enter their first year at university or college. Applications from 18 year olds can only be made for instrument purchase. Applicants should be British or Irish or have been resident in the UK or Ireland for at least 3 years on the closing date.
The closing date for this year has now passed and we are no longer accepting applications. The next application closing date will be in June 2010.
