Handel Institute Grants and Awards


Awards for Research

The Handel Institute offers Awards in support of research projects involving the music or life of George Frideric Handel or his associates or contemporaries. The guidelines for applicants are currently being revised and will be made available as soon as possible. The closing date for applications will be 1 December 2017.

Conference Awards

Applications are invited for Handel Institute Conference Awards. These new awards, which are available for a trial period from 2014, are intended for individuals who wish to attend an overseas conference in order to read a paper on Handel (or on a Handel-related subject) that has already been accepted by the conference organisers. The awards are open to UK residents who wish to attend a conference elsewhere and to overseas residents who wish to attend one in the UK. Awards will relate to the cost of travel and/or accommodation, and applications must be submitted before expenditure is incurred. Preference will be given to applicants who are postgraduate students or early-career academics and to those wishing to attend a biennial conference of the American Handel Society, an annual conference of the Georg-Friedrich-Händel-Gesellschaft (in Halle) or a conference of the Handel Institute; but the field is not limited in either of these ways.
