Grant Description

рThe Arts Endowmentуs support of a project may start on or after June 1, 2014.с The National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Awards represent the highest honor that our nation bestows upon jazz musicians. Each year, a select number of living legends who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of jazz are recognized. Awards are based on nominations from the public including the jazz community. In 2015, the Arts Endowment anticipates honoring up to three jazz musicians as well as one individual who is designated as a jazz advocate. The Arts Endowment plans to enter into a Cooperative Agreement with an organization to coordinate the 2015 NEA Jazz Masters Announcement, Awards Ceremony & Concert, and related activities as detailed below. The 2015 Awards Ceremony & Concert will take place during the month of April, to coincide with Jazz Appreciation Month. While applicants may propose a location in any U.S. city, preference will be given to proposals that select a venue in Washington, DC, to host these events. The Arts Endowment may enter into subsequent Cooperative Agreements with the recipient of this Cooperative Agreement. Any such future Cooperative Agreements, however, would be subject to agency priorities, the availability of funds, Cooperator performance, and the agencyуs regular review process.
