'Helps outstanding young musicians to develop and sustain international careers with awards that fund tailor-made projects. However, the Trust considers the value of receiving a BBT Award or Fellowship to be far greater than the direct financial assistance given. It aims to provide advice, guidance and contacts as well as public relations exposure for artists’ BBT-funded projects. Winners receive a high profile on the BBT website, with audio and video material included where appropriate, and via its news and e-newsletters. BBT artists join a family that supports them in advancing their careers.'

'Annual awards are open to young professional emerging chamber music groups based in the United Kingdom ... We do not make grants. The awards take the form of paid engagements with local Music Clubs throughout Scotland, usually arranged in short tours, the Trust being responsible for the artists’ fees and the Clubs contributing travel expenses and accommodation. The fees we pay are relatively modest but the value of the awards is that they provide invaluable platform experience and an introduction to the logistics of planning and carrying out tours.'
