How to Apply for Funding

Proposals for projects must fulfill one or more of the aims of the Trust: To advance the education of the general public in the Alexander Technique and to promote research and study into all aspects of the Technique.

We provide funding the region of £100-£5,000, either as a grant or as loan. Although we are flexible in what we are prepared to fund, we normally do not cover introductory classes or workshops, lessons or teacher training. We do not give retrospective funding. Generally, we do not expect the Trust to be the sole source of fund for any projects.

Please see Supported Projects for examples of projects we have funded in the past.
