We do everything we can to make our courses as cheap as possible, but we know that sometimes it can be hard to get the cash together fast enough to grab an amazing opportunity. Read on for info on payment plans, funding opportunities and other ways to make your CAMP session happen.

Open Grants

Our Open Grants program offers grants of up to 50% of the cost of your CAMP session. The application form is quick and easy, and applications are usually assessed within a couple of hours - apply online here. If you're awarded a grant, you can also split the remaining payment (see the next bit of this page) making things even more manageable. For example - if you get a 50% grant, and then split the remaining 50%, you pay just €162 (or £140 / $179) per month over 4 months.

Open Grants are only available for our onsite program, not our online workshops.

Please note: the application should be completed before you reserve a place.

Payment Plan

You can pay your course fee in 6 monthly installments. The first payment, which you make immediately, is a non-refundable deposit. The subsequent payments are automatically taken from the payment card you used for the first payment, at one month intervals. So, if you pay the deposit on the 10th of March, the next payment will be taken on the 10th of April, and so on until the full course fee is paid.

You can split your payment even if you receive an Open Grant (see above). There's more information about payment splits in our terms.

Educational Match Program

If you're in education, whether you're learning, teaching or otherwise working within an educational institution, you can get funding towards your CAMP session. Our Educational Match Program works like this: we will match any financial contribution offered by your educational institution; so if your university department, for example, offers you a study grant of €600, we will reduce your course fee by €600, leaving you with €99 to pay.

To find out how to get your university department, school or college involved in our Educational Match Program, contact us.

Nora Faraday Grant

Each year, two places at CAMP are made available to women through the Nora Faraday Grant - find out more here. Please note - this grant is not available for 2023/24 - we hope to reinstate it in 2025.


We believe strongly in the idea that it is the responsibility of governments to support the cultural potential of their citizens. We will be very happy to help with funding applications, and can provide letters of invitation and any other documentation requested by your chosen funding body.

For European travel and project grants, check out this page on the TransArtists website. There's also a guide for artists outside Europe.

If you're in the UK and looking for funding for a music-based course, make sure you check out Help Musicians UK. They're great people, and their funding and advice is both accessible and responsive. Their Transmission Fund is perfect for CAMP workshops, and they have a really useful Funding Wizard, which you can find here.

Also for UK artists seeking funding, this list of funding opportunities by Jerwood Arts is excellent.
