Last summer, British charity Youth Music launched its incubator fund to help 18-25 year-olds, particularly those from under-represented backgrounds, get into the music industry. The £2m fund revealed its first recipients in November. Since then it has continued, and this morning applications are opening for the fund’s third round.

It’s offering grants of up to £30k to ‘forward-thinking music industry employers’ who have “interesting ideas on how to incorporate young people into their business to work with them in partnership, offering sustainable and meaningful careers and development pathways”.

The grants can be spent on wages and support, and are aimed at smaller, independent companies in the industry. Full details of the fund and the application process can be found here.
