Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is committed to contemporary music in many ways. In addition, the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation supports festivals, concerts with premieres and revivals, composition commissions, symposia and the publication of musicological writings worldwide. Smaller and larger projects are basically on an equal basis.

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation does not award scholarships and does not support the production of marketable CDs. Even internal university projects cannot be funded. Likewise, the Music Foundation does not award general institutional grants, but only supports specific projects. Funding for translations and printing costs for dissertations is also not possible. Project applications that have been rejected once cannot be resubmitted.

Information on the application process:

Applicant

Only the organising institution is entitled to submit an application. Self-applications and applications by individuals are generally not possible. The applicant to be named is the contact person for all queries regarding content. The commercial director must be authorised to sign for the institution, as he/she must sign the funding agreement in the event of funding.

Funding mode

Funding is awarded for a maximum of three consecutive years or periods (e.g. biennials). Each institution can only be supported with one project per calendar year.

Funding amount

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation does not provide full funding for projects with the exception of composition commissions. Funding is provided primarily for artistic costs. The Board of Trustees pays attention to how the requested funding amount relates to the participation of other institutions/organisers/foundations. These should participate in the project within a similar framework.

Application deadlines

The application deadline for projects that will begin in the following year at the earliest is
15 September. Decisions on these applications will be made by the end of the respective year. The application deadline for projects planned at short notice in the second half of the year is 1 March. Decisions on these applications will be made by the end of June. By the application deadline, the online application must have been successfully sent and the additional material must have been received by post.
