GRAMMY Foundation Grant Program Awards More Than $200,000 For Music Research And Sound Preservation

The GRAMMY Foundation Grant Program announced today that more than $200,000 in grants will be awarded to 14 recipients in the United States to help facilitate a range of research on a variety of subjects, as well as support a number of archiving and preservation programs.

Research projects include a study that will investigate the impact of listening to music and how it is associated with emotional regulation in service members with post-traumatic stress disorder, and a study that will research a musical biofeedback-based intervention for epilepsy.

Preservation and archiving initiatives include the assessment of Halim Abdel Messieh El-Dabh's life's work in electronic music production as well as a project preserving comedy pioneer Lenny Bruce's personal tapes. A complete list of grant awards and projects is below. The deadline each year for submitting letters of inquiry is Oct. 1. Guidelines and the letter of inquiry form for the 2016 cycle will be available beginning May 1 at www.grammyfoundation.org/grants.

"The Recording Academy is proud to provide the financial support for our GRAMMY Foundation's longstanding Grant Program," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy® and the GRAMMY Foundation. "Not only have we awarded more than $6 million to more than 300 worthwhile initiatives over the course of this program, but we have funded such a diverse and outstanding group of grantees and significant projects that the Foundation has become a driving philanthropic force in the fields of archiving, preservation and scientific research."
