Grant of the Week: 2016 GRAMMY Foundation Grant Cycle
Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians that has been posted to our free Calendar. Today we feature an opportunity with the GRAMMY Foundation.
The GRAMMY Foundation Grant Program is seeking applications to help facilitate the support of music 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.
The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2015.
The AHA offers a free Calendar advertising awards, meetings, and exhibits. Submit your own announcements to our Calendar.
