Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofits and individuals for scholarly and historical research and archiving and preservation of information about Latin music genres, as well as historical research, anthropology, and documentation of music traditions and Latin American folklore.

Grants offered by the Foundation fall into one of two categories:

- Research Grants fund projects focused on historical research, folklore, and anthropology of Latin music genres.
- Preservation Grants support projects aiming to archive and preserve the heritage of Latin music.

Preservation grants may fund:
- Preservation of original, pre-existing media and source material
- Projects of historical, artistic and cultural Latin music significance
- Archiving projects including rescue, organization, and access to pre-existing media and materials

Funding is intended to further international awareness and appreciation of the significant contributions of Latin music and its makers to the world’s culture.

Projects are encouraged in the following twenty-four countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Research that has a broad public accessibility (i.e. available at no cost via publication and/or conferences) will generally be given priority over projects that have limited public access (i.e. shared solely in limited groups). Funding requests for projects with no public access will rarely be considered but will be evaluated based on impact and importance.
