Small grants

The Music Therapy Charity is currently inviting proposals from music therapists (including research students) to support research. Grants may be made to help with such costs as part-time salary for fixed periods, academic or clinical supervision, and collection and analysis of data. The Charity aims to support research projects in two categories, small grants and large projects, including PhD Research.

Within a limited annual research budget (currently £15,000), smaller grants may be made in total or partial funding of projects, including some co-funded from other sources. In this category all areas of music therapy research will be considered. Applications for these smaller grants may be made by submitting a concise summary of the project, including estimated cost and duration and stating how much funding is being sought from the Charity. Typical grants up to £1,500. Deadlines for the submissions are the middle of July and the end of January.

Submissions should be sent to : The Chairman, The Music Therapy Charity, 26 Fitzroy Square, London W1T 6BT (email:
