The Paul Sacher Foundation was founded in 1973. At first its purpose was to preserve Paul Sacher’s musical library. A short while later the holdings began to be systematically expanded, and its purpose started to change. Today, the Foundation is an international research center for the music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, with some hundred estates and collections from leading composers and performers. Each year the Foundation awards a limited number of once-only scholarships. Their primary aim is to ease the financial burden on users from distant countries during their stay in Basel.
