Eric Thompson Trust
Royal Philharmonic Society
The Trust provides grants to aspiring professional organists. Preference will be given to students seeking assistance towards specific projects, rather than continuing academic tuition, e.g. further studies, hire of instruments, cost of travel and subsistence for auditions and engagements, or other expenses incurred in the pursuit of an organist's career. Grants will normally be limited to a contribution towards such costs. The Trust also offers The Flentrop Scholarship, which enables a young organist to visit Zaandam in Holland for two weeks for an introduction to the craft of organ building and tuning.
