Youth Music NextGen Fund – Round Three Now Open

Grants are available for the UK’s young creatives to help them participate in the music industry.

The aim of the Youth Music NextGen Fund is to help emerging musicians and behind-the-scenes creatives take a step forward in participating and changing the music industries.

Grants of up to £2,500 are available to help applicants launch a creative project, idea or business. Costs linked to training, career development, travel, audience development, marketing, equipment, software and business development can be covered.

Applications will be accepted from 18-25 year-old creatives (under-30s who identify as d/Deaf or disabled) in the UK who lack the finance to develop their creative project or idea.

Applications for the third round of the programme are now open. The deadline to apply is Monday 23 May 2022 (17:00 BST).
