GRAMMY Museum Announces 2021 Grant Program Guidelines
The GRAMMY Museum has announced new Letter of Inquiry requirements along with the guidelines for its 2021 Grant Program. Generously funded by the Recording Academy, the GRAMMY Museum Grant Program has awarded more than $7.5 million to more than 400 noteworthy projects.
The Grant Program administers grants annually to organizations and individuals to support efforts that advance the archiving and preservation of the music and recorded sound heritage of North America for future generations, as well as scientific research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition.
In June, the Museum awarded $200,000 in grants to 13 recipients in the United States. See the full list of this year's grant recipients and read about their projects here.
"As a nonprofit cultural organization that relies on annually applying for grants to help fund our education programs, we are well apprised of how much of an impact an approved grant can make," Michael Sticka, President of the GRAMMY Museum. "The work we help fund through our grants program, with the Recording Academy as our partner, includes an impressive array of projects that are at the forefront of exploring music's beneficial intersection with science, and that maintain our musical legacy for future generations. The initiatives announced today exemplify the Museum's mission to uphold music's value in our lives and shared culture."
Recipients are determined based on criteria such as merit, uniqueness of project and the ability to accomplish intended goals. The deadline for submission is Nov. 1, 2020. To view guidelines and new Letter of Inquiry requirements, visit the Grant Program's website.
