Grammy Foundation Grants Program Awards Nearly $400,000 In Grants For Music Research And Preservation
The GRAMMY Foundation Grants Program announced today that nearly $400,000 in grants will be awarded to 13 recipients across the country. Funds will be given to help facilitate an extraordinary range of research, archiving and preservation projects, including: an investigation of the clinical effectiveness of a unique therapeutic device for neurorehabilitation of stroke patients; an undertaking to preserve recordings of American classical music by such luminaries as Aaron Copland and Charles Ives; and an endeavor to preserve and archive the Joe Glazer Collection, which contains some of the most important songs and speeches of the American labor movement. A complete list of grant awards and projects is attached.
In addition to these grants, this year the GRAMMY Foundation will dedicate a portion of funds to support music archiving and preservation projects for Gulf Coast collections. The application for this special grant cycle is currently available online at www.grammyfoundation.com and the deadline to submit applications is May 1, 2006.
"The Grants Program is a mainstay of the GRAMMY Foundation's mission," said Recording Academy and GRAMMY Foundation President Neil Portnow. "It encourages dialogue about the critical importance of music's history and future, and its impact on individuals, communities, science and culture."
The GRAMMY Foundation's Grants Program is generously funded by The Recording Academy. Now in its 18th year, the GRAMMY Foundation Grants Program has awarded more than $2 million to approximately 200 noteworthy projects. The Grants 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 the Americas for future generations, as well as research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition.
Recipients are determined based on criteria such as merit, uniqueness of project and the ability to accomplish intended goals. The deadline each year for submitting grant applications is Oct. 1. Applications for the 2007 cycle will be available at www.grammy.com/GRAMMY_Foundation/Grants/ after May 1, 2006.
