Overview:

Since 1995, the Society and the Committee on Cultural Diversity (CCD) have hosted minority students at each annual conference to expose them to various aspects of the field. These elements might include introductions to representatives of graduate programs in musicology from across the country, future colleagues and mentors, listening to papers covering a broad spectrum of musicological interests, exposure to the many interest groups within the Society, and opportunities to attend a variety of concerts.

Eligibility:

Application is open to minority undergraduates and terminal masters degree candidates (African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native-Americans, and other traditionally under-represented groups). International students registered at U.S. or Canadian universities at the time of the conference are eligible to apply for the award. Funding is available to recipients to assist with travel and lodging expenses. Please note that AMS does not provide airfare from outside the U.S. or Canada.

Overview and Eligibility:

The AMS offers Professional Development Travel Grants to AMS members who have little or no financial support for travel to participate in the Annual Meeting of the Society. The purpose of this grant is to aid non-affiliated scholars and those with institutional appointments but little or no financial support for conference travel.

Grants of up to $500 (applicants outside North America) and $350 (North American applicants) (subject to funding availability) are available to those who are presenting papers or performances, chairing sessions, or serving on an AMS Committee. Graduate students presenting papers at the Annual Meeting of the Society are also eligible for Professional Development Travel Grants, if the home institution is unable to provide sufficient support.

As a general rule, scholars will not be funded two years in a row.

Notification and Use of Funds:

Applicants will receive a decision notification in early-mid August.
