During the 1960s and 70s steps were taken to transform the century-old official administration functions to that of a free and independent academy. In 1971 the responsibility for post-secondary music education was assume by the National Agency for Higher Education. In 1982 the Swedish National Collections of Music was formed, which administers the affair of the Music Library of Sweden, the Swedish Music History Archive, and the Music Museum.
The diversified pursuits of the Academy today are based on a large number of scholarships and endowment funds, various specialized committees and publishing activities. Scholarships totalling 5 million Swedish Kronor are awarded annually to talented young people for music studies.
The Academy is headed by a Board, its President and two Vice Presidents. A Permanent Secretary with office staff carries out the daily work of the Academy. The Academy has its beautiful offices in the 17th century former hotel for foreign ministers at Blasieholmstorg in Stockholm.
