Win a Grammy ... Grant

Only on occasion do we see the world of music intersecting with science, but now The Grammy Foundation is funding research to make that connection more common. The foundation, which is affiliated with The Recording Academy, the organization that gives out the Grammy Awards, announced this year's call for proposals for grants of $10,000 to $40,000 for "original scientific research projects related to the impact of music on the human condition." Examples cited in the announcement include the impact of music on early childhood education, effects of music therapy, and the medical and occupational well-being of music professionals. The deadline for applications is 1 October 2007.

GrantsNet has an overview of the program; full details are found on The Grammy Foundation site. There's no indication who's hosting the grant awards ceremony.
