Grants for Individual Composers

Although increasingly more scarce, funding for individual jazz composers and their projects can still be found in a variety of places.  If you’re new to seeking funding, the place to start is with your local and/or State Arts Council.  Not every community is served by one or both of these – but most are.  While maintaining a comprehensive list of every such granting agency is beyond the present scope of this website; you’ll find a good starter list of grant opportunities and competitions below.  We welcome recommendations for additions to this list!
