Grammy Foundation Accepting Applications for Music Preservation and Research Grants

The Grammy Foundation Grant Program, funded by the Recording Academy, annually provides grants for music archiving and preservation efforts and for scientific research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition.

The foundation will award archiving and preservation project grants to organizations and individuals working to advance the archiving and preservation of the music and recorded sound heritage of the Americas. The archiving and preservation area has two funding categories — preservation implementation ($20,000 maximum award each) as well as planning, assessment, and/or consultation ($5,000 maximum award each).

The foundation also will award scientific research project grants of up to a maximum of $20,000 each to organizations and individuals working to research the impact of music on the human condition. Examples might include the study of the effects of music on mood, cognition, and healing, as well as the medical and occupational well-being of music professionals and the creative process underlying music. Priority is given to projects with strong methodological design as well those addressing an important research question.
