The SMEI operates a competitive scheme to award a limited number of grants to its members.

The SMEI awards a number of small grants to its members of up to €500 to performing groups invited to perform at ISME and €200 (max) in support of music education research at international conferences in music education. This grant aims to assist music groups, postgraduate research students, non-affiliated scholars, or academics without recourse to institutional funds.

To qualify for consideration, applicants (whether group or individual) must be a member of the Society for at least three months prior to application. Grants are payable on production of receipts.
