Supporting Music Preservation & Research 

The GRAMMY Foundation ® Grant Program is seeking applications from organizations that facilitate the support of music preservation and research projects.  With funding generously provided by The Recording Academy®, each year grants are awarded to organizations and individuals that support the advancement of 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.

More than $6 million in grants has been awarded to more than 300 recipients.
