The Jazz Education Network (JEN)’s JAZZ2U initiative has been picked by the Herb Alpert Foundation to receive a $25,000 grant, which will help the organization dole out grants of its own.

JEN—which seeks to build the jazz community through education, promotion, and audience development—will give out grants ranging from $300 to $500 on a first-come, first-served basis to schools and communities throughout the United States. Eligible JEN chapters and societies around the country may apply in January 2019, and individuals can start applying in February.
