- Schools must apply separately (please provide
information for the applying school only, do not include

district can only apply for one school per grant cycle.

- Previously awarded schools must wait five years before
applications each year. Although we would like to help all who
apply, our resources are limited and the process is very
competitive. Music programs serving low-income communities,
programs with little or no budget for musical instruments and music
programs that serve the most students out of the school population
are considered before all others. We encourage you to seek funding
from several sources in your community.
Applications are made available by invitation only. If your school music program meets the criteria below, you may submit the Pre-Qualification formto be considered to submit a full application. Because of the large number of schools requesting assistance, your school may be placed on a wait list for several months before review and notification.
