EMI Music Sound Foundation is an independent music education charity, established in 1997 to celebrate the centenary of EMI Records and to improve young peoples’ access to music education in the UK & Ireland. The Foundation provides two types of awards:

Instrument and/or equipment awards which allow schools, music teachers and individuals in full time education for assistance with the purchase of musical instruments and/or equipment

Bursary awards which allow students at the colleges or organisations (as listed on their website) to apply for assistance with fees and/or living expenses (these are handled directly by the college or organisation).
