Chorus America invites nonprofit organizations and schools to apply to the Music Education Partnership Grants program, which is designed to support collaborations between community organizations and elementary and/or middle/junior high schools during the 2022-23 school year.
In the inaugural year of the program, Chorus America will award $900,000+ in grants serving students in 4 regions of investment: British Columbia & the Northwest, Central Appalachia, the Southwest, and the Upper Midwest.
Chorus America will award grants ranging between $15,000 – $50,000 to each region. In addition to funding, Chorus America will also offer a robust peer learning experience for the grant partner cohort, including virtual convenings and participation in the 2022 and 2023 Chorus America conferences.
Projects led-by BIPOC/People of the Global Majority are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as applicants led-by and serving historically marginalized communities. First-time grant applicants are also encouraged to submit an application.
Applications are due January 28, 2022. Please visit Music Education Partnerships Grants page (www.chorusamerica.org/music-ed-grants) on the Chorus America website for program details. We highly encourage applicants to review the scoring rubric, as well as Chorus America’s core values & guiding definitions, to get a better understanding of the criteria that will be applied when reviewing applications.
