Call for Applications / American Musicological Society
HOWARD MAYER BROWN GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP for 2011-12
Intended to increase the presence of minority scholars and teachers in
musicology (broadly defined), this fellowship supports one year of
graduate work for a student at a North American university who is a
member of a group underrepresented in the discipline, including, in
the U.S., African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and
Asian Americans, and, in Canada, visible minorities.
Students are eligible to apply who have completed at least one year of
graduate work, intend to pursue a Ph.D. degree, and are in good
standing at their home institution. The Fellowship is not limited to
dissertation work. Awards are based on merit, with no restrictions as
to research area, age, or sex. Intended for full-time study, the
Fellowship carries a non-renewable twelve-month stipend currently set
at US $19,000 to which continuing support from the recipient's home
institution may be added.
Applications include a personal statement that summarizes one?s
musical and academic background, reasons for pursuing an advanced
degree in musicology and research goals, along with a plan for the
fellowship year. Also required are a curriculum vitae, three letters
of recommendation, and recent samples of the applicant's work.
See http://www.ams-net.org/fellowships/hmb.php for further details
about eligibility and application.
On-line applications are due by 5 p.m. EST, 15 December 2010. The
winner will be selected in Spring 2011 and the award conferred at the
Annual Meeting of the AMS in San Francisco in November 2011. Inquiries
may be addressed to Prof. Charles Hiroshi Garrett .
