Support objectives

Komponistmidlerne / Composer Funds support:

Working grants

Members who wish to immerse themselves in a specific project or complete a major work can apply for a working grant. The application must be accompanied by a clear and detailed project description, with relevant enclosures where possible. March 1st you can obtain a working grant of max. 75.000 DKK . The rest of the year max 25.000 DKK. Application for a working grant should not include a budget.

Travel assistance

You can apply for funding for documented travel expenses concerning your own travel in connection with:

  • premieres and rehearsals at home / and abroad
  • work performances at festivals or major concert events
  • active participation in the composer workshops and similar event
  • study tours and stays

Travel support will be provided for the cheapest mode of public transport. If there is justified reasoning that you must use your own car, you could receive a mileage allowance of around 1.90 DKK per kilometer.

You can also apply for hotel or other suitable accommodation (currently 700 DKK per night). 

Travel expenses on fx. musicians a.o must be applied in the production pool as a production expense.



Mentor course

As a member of the Danish Composers' Society you can apply for professional and artistic development with other composers, artists or people with other relevant skills at a high level (mentor).

Based on an approved application for a mentor program you may be granted a scholarship of max 5000 DKK. This amount is paid to your mentor following each course.

A mentor relationship is primarily based on commitment from both sides, mutual interest and good chemistry. It is an opportunity to find new inspiration if you want to change tracks or desire to learn new compositional techniques or technical skills.
