The Jazz & New Music program is designed to encourage the creative and professional development of French jazz and contemporary composers, musicians and ensembles in the U.S.
Beginning in 2019, the program will encompass three grant components:
Jazz & New Music Creative Grants support projects jointly conceived by French and American professional musicians that encourage artistic exploration, foster intercultural dialogue, and contribute to the dynamism of the musical aesthetics it defends. It also supports new commissions to French composers, especially in the field of new music, including computer and electro-acoustic forms.

Jazz & New Music Residency Grants support French musicians and composers seeking to develop specific projects including research in collaboration with an American organization. The residency enables artists to become immersed in the community they work in, and develop new contacts and networks. It also allows artists to generate new collaborative projects that may continue beyond the residency.

Jazz & New Music Touring Grants support touring projects of French musicians and ensembles in the U.S., with a minimum of three performances. The program will also continue to support U.S. professionals to travel to France upon decision of the steering committee.
