2: Sample Application + The Common App

MGP 2024 Application Overview

The following is the Musical Grant Program Sample Application for 2024. Applicants are encouraged to draft responses and gather required work samples before completing the official application on the hosting platform. 

The Common App

PLEASE NOTE that the InterMusic SF Musical Grant Program application is integrated with The Common App and may be used in completing this application. The Common App is a new tool created by a consortium of Bay Area funders to streamline the application process and save grantseeking artists and arts and culture organizations time and resources. 

The Common App is meant to be completed first and then used to populate applications of Bay Area funders currently integrating this tool. Corresponding questions on the MGP application that integrate with The Common App are noted.

Submissions of The Common App ONLY will NOT be considered for MGP funding. You must submit an official MGP application to be considered for this award.

To find out more about The Common App, including other Bay Area funders utilizing this tool, instructions on how to use it, and frequently asked questions, visit commonappartsbayarea.org.
