Update: JAZZ2U grants are not available at this time. Please check this page often for the latest information.


Thanks to a generous grant from the Herb Alpert Foundation, we present JAZZ2U – the Jazz Education Network’s commitment to local jazz outreach.

Eligible JEN members* can apply for a $300 or $500 grant to assist in funding a speaker, clinician, or performer, at any event that will bring jazz to new or existing audiences via schools, community centers, performances or informances by quality performers and advanced educators. Grants are limited to venues within the United States at this time.

*Applicants AND guest artists must be JEN Full Individual members.
