ICMP’s Accelerator Fund, an initiative aimed at supporting our musical community with access to funding for their latest projects, is launching for new applications. 

The fund is managed by our dedicated team of industry professionals in the Careers and Industry Hub

Alongside the one-to-one guidance the team offer on artist development, release strategies and more, the Accelerator Fund should provide our students and alumni with the support they need to bring their projects to life. 

Any student or alumni can apply for funds if they can demonstrate why this specific element of their professional development needs the backing and is part of a wider strategy to help push their career forward. 

The Accelerator Fund has two application periods with one in Semester A and the other in Semester B. 

The first will run from 5th October to 13th November.
