  • The Quinn Coleman Scholarship, GRAMMY Foundation

    The Recording Academy is now accepting applications from incoming college juniors and seniors interested in pursuing a career in the music industry for the inaugural Quinn Coleman Scholarship.

  • Liberatory Leadership Praxis Power Fellowship

    The Liberatory Leadership Praxis Power Cohort is a 2-year program for Black-led, base-building organizations that are in their founding stages (years 0-5) who are working to create values-driven liberatory organizational structures. The program will support organizations develop as leaders, and build a strong base with a solid organizing framework. Each organization participating in the fellowship will receive $50,000 for organizational support ($25,000 each year), $10,000 for artist partnership/engagement ($5,000 each year), and additional capacity support.

  • Black Girls Ventures Pitch

    The BGV Pitch Program flips the traditional pitch experience on its head: we coach entrepreneurs, host a live crowdfunded pitch competition, then connect them to community and professionals to support them on their journey. We democratize funding by allowing the audience to vote with their dollars using the Raisify platform for the founders whose pitch they favor. Each founder has 3 minutes to pitch and a 3 minute Q&A from the audience.

  • Small and Minority and/or Woman-Owned Business Wage Subsidy

    Baltimore has up to $1,500,000 in total wage subsidies for employers under this program to support hiring or rehiring 250 city residents at $6,000 per subsidy. The subsidy application period began on December 1, 2021, and will remain open as long as funds are available.

  • Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program

    Engaging a new generation of workers and employers through youth apprenticeships ensures that Maryland remains open for business. The Apprenticeship Maryland Program (AMP) specifically invests in key industries including manufacturing, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and traditional apprenticeships.
