Albertine Grants

Promoting French musicians and ensembles in the United States is a core goal of the program. Touring projects will be supported with up to 10,000 dollars, solely for projects confirmed by an American presenting venue.

Project Eligibility

— Tours must include at least 3 shows or public programs (masterclasses are considered).
— Works presented must be composed by living composers.

Priority will be given to:

— Projects involving artists or living composers whose work has rarely been seen in the partner country.
— Projects presented in a minimum of 3 different cities.
— Projects involving new generations of composers.
— Projects involving women artists and/or composers.
— Projects reflecting diversity and inclusion.
— Projects experimenting with new forms of music.

The fund will not support directly individual artists.

Who may apply:

The Jazz & New Music program offers financial support in the form of grants to American or French nonprofit organizations that represent, produce, or present the project of the artist(s).

— Individual artist or ensemble involved should work at a professional level.
— Individual artist or ensemble involved must be French citizens or legal residents for the past five years and currently reside in France or its territories.
— Applicants must be (or represented by) an American nonprofit institution or a French association loi 1901. Presenting venues can apply individually. However, it is recommended to coordinate with other venues involved in a tour before applying.
— Applicants (or their representatives) must be able to demonstrate their nonprofit status.
— Companies and ensembles may submit applications for performances and tours only if they have obtained written engagement from presenting partners.
