Diversity Program Grant Application


To us, striving for greater diversity in classical music means striving to include, support, and celebrate more of the vastly varied fabric of humanity in the classical music community. Diversity encompasses every imaginable type of human difference, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values system, national origin, and political beliefs.

We want to be part of the wave that makes change in the world. This change will not happen overnight, but we believe that if every organization and every individual contributes, we can and will drive progress. Let’s work together!

$1000 worth of repertoire and methods

Here at Carl Fischer Music, we believe diversity in classical music starts with early education, and we are inspired by the power that educators have to lift up students of all kinds. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we will award ten diversity grants of $1000 of repertoire and methods to ten U.S. school music programs with concrete plans to support the underrepresented young musicians in their communities. How could $1000 of repertoire and methods free up funds in your budget for diversity measures?

It could be helping out with instrument rental or private lessons, providing students with method books, kicking off a tutoring program, or setting up a mentorship program to promote career awareness at your school—you tell us! Let’s start this journey together.

Application deadline: November 15, 2020
Announcement of Grants: Grant Applications will be reviewed by a panel in the order in which they are received. The panel’s decision will be final. Winners will be announced December 15, 2020.
