Programs

The Michael Kamen Grant is awarded to established Title 1 school- music programs throughout the country.All applicants submit a pre-qualification form, and if the program meets our guidelines we invite them to apply for a grant of instruments and/or repairs to instruments already in their inventory. Applications are reviewed once each year to select music programs that: * demonstrate financial need and whose students are from low-income families * have an established music program and strong participation * show administrative support of the program * have knowledgable and professional teachers * present a compelling case for how the grant will benefit their students
