With funding generously provided by The Recording Academy, the GRAMMY
Foundation Grant Program awards grants each year 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,
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.
