Grammy Foundation Grants

The GRAMMY Foundation

The GRAMMY Foundation® Grant Program is seeking applications to help facilitate the support of preservation and research projects. With funding generously provided by The Recording Academy®, the Grant Program awards grants each year to organizations and individuals to support efforts that advance the archiving and preservation of music and the recorded sound heritage of the Americas for future generations, and research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition. Grant funds have been utilized to preserve private collections as well as materials at the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian and numerous colleges and universities. Research projects have studied the links between music and early childhood education, treatments for illnesses and injuries common to musicians, and the impact of music therapy on populations from infants to the elderly. More than $6 million in grants has been awarded to more than 300 recipients.

  • Eligibility: Organizations and individuals are eligible to apply.
  • Funding: Grant amounts are dependent upon the number of applications received and the quality and depth of each proposed research or preservation project.
