The Handel Institute

Handel Institute Grants and Awards


Awards for Research

Handel Institute Research Awards are intended to help individual scholars pursue a research project relating to George Frideric Handel or his associates or contemporaries. No single award will exceed £1,000, but more than one award may be made. Awards may not be used to pay university or college fees. There is no application form.

Applicants should submit:

  • an explanation of the research to be undertaken (what, when, where, how and why) and the intended output;
  • an itemised statement of the expenses to be incurred;
  • details of any other funding (for the same project) that has been applied for or received;
  • two references (it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that these arrive; the Handel Institute does not solicit references).

Applications must be submitted, before the expenditure is incurred. The closing date was 30 November 2017.

Conference Awards

Handel Institute Conference Awards are intended to help individuals attend an overseas conference to read a paper on a Handel-related subject that has already been accepted by the conference organisers. The awards, which relate to the cost of travel and/or accommodation, are open to UK residents who wish to attend a conference elsewhere and to overseas residents who wish to attend one in the UK. Applications must be submitted before expenditure is incurred, and preference will be given to postgraduate students and early-career academics. Closing dates for applications: 30 November 2017; 30 April and 31 August 2018.
