Research & Scoping Awards 2020

Following a thorough peer review process, and a meeting of the Award Review Panel, the Society is delighted to confirm funding of up to £10,000 for each of the following four research proposals received from SRHE members:

Scoping Awards 2020
Investigating how socio-economic background influences music students’ aspirations, sense of identity and belonging within UK conservatoires
by Kirsty Devaney, Birmingham City University
Marking whiteness in widening access and participation policy
by Manny Madriaga, Sheffield Hallam University

As the funding available to support research and scoping projects is particularly limited, we would like to thank the many Society members and Scoping Award entrants for the time and care taken in putting together so many fascinating proposals.

We have provided constructive, individual feedback to all entrants whose proposals we were unable to fund, which will hopefully help refine these proposals and potentially find alternative sources of funding. If you have not received feedback on your application, please contact
