Every year, MERYC England makes small awards either for Teach-meets or for research into practice. These range from £150 to £350 depending on funds available, as contribution towards a project or event focused on music with young children. They are available on application for individual or small groups of practitioners currently active in early childhood music education. We may also consider offering bursaries towards the cost of attending European conferences as an alternative to the other grants.

We will be sharing further information about grants for 2024 soon.
