Check It Out: New Grant Opportunity!

Grant Name: GRAMMY Signature Schools

Funded by: GRAMMY Foundation

Description: Does your school deserve a GRAMMY? And a little bit of cash for your music programs to go along with it? If your school has a totally great music program with a fantastic music teacher or two thrown in -- it does. Or if you are keeping music classes in your school despite that fact that you barely have a budget for sheet music much less instruments – it does. GRAMMY Signature School awards are given to high school music programs that are keeping music programs alive and well despite budgets and school politics. Each school gets a GRAMMY Award and a cash prize of up to $10,000. Schools compete in different categories based on excellence or need. We have GRAMMY Signature Schools from every size city and town across the country.

Average Amount: $5,000.00 - $10,000.00
