Research Grants - Call for proposals May 2018

The Music Therapy Charity is currently inviting its next round of 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.

With a limited annual research budget (currently £15,000) we invite applications for small grants to go towards funding of projects, some of which are likely to be co-funded from other sources. All areas of music therapy research will be considered. To apply, please submit a concise summary of the project using the application form provided at

Typical grant sums awarded are up to £1,500.

The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2018 and funding outcomes will be communicated to applicants by the end of September 2018.
