Loan Fund for Musical Instruments

Loan Fund for Musical Instruments

This Fund helps young professional musicians (aged under 36 years) to buy instruments, which they otherwise could not afford, of a quality appropriate to their needs. The loan scheme provides low interest rate loans repayable over a maximum period of five years, for instruments for use in public performance (except practice pianos and organs) to young professional musicians. The grant scheme is designed to help students and young professional musicians from the beginning of their third year of full-time study until two years after the completion of their full-time couse. Preference is given to British Nationals and the Fund is particularly interested in supporting instrument makers resident in the United Kingdom. Awards are not made in respect of electric or electronically controlled instruments. Completed application forms, with references, need to reach the Secretary to the Fund by 21 December, 1 May and 1 September for consideration at the next meeting of the Executive Committee of the Trustees. All requests for assistance are considered individually by the Executive Committee at its regular meetings.
