- About Us
Thirteen U.S. schools have been selected as GRAMMY Signature Schools and have been awarded grants totaling $61,000. Created in 1998, the GRAMMY Signature Schools program recognizes the top U.S. public high schools that make an outstanding commitment to music education during an academic school year.
Each of the 13 GRAMMY Signature Schools will receive a custom award and a monetary grant to benefit its music program. The top three schools are designated Gold recipients. The best of the Gold recipients is named the National GRAMMY Signature School and will receive $5,000. The two remaining Gold schools will each receive $3,500. Two remaining GRAMMY Signature Schools recipients will each receive a grant of $2,500 to benefit their music programs. Eight schools will receive the Enterprise Award grant, which recognizes the efforts made by schools that are economically underserved. Each of the Enterprise Award schools will receive a grant in the amount of $5,500. The GRAMMY Signature Schools program is made possible in part through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund.
The GRAMMY Foundation also presents the GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award, an extension of the GRAMMY Signature Schools program in partnership with Brookfield Properties, Converse, the Hot Topic Foundation,Journeys, and RBC Capital Markets. Through this alliance, the GRAMMY Foundation identifies financially challenged public high school music programs to receive this award and a $2,000 grant. During the current fiscal year, approximately 80 schools to date have received the GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award, with grants totaling $160,000.
