Musicology/ Ethnomusicology

The Foundation will consider proposals from scholars examining and interpreting Musicology and Ethnomusicology from a critical point of view in any genre, place, language, time period, or format (manuscript, print, digital), including philological, historical, theoretical, cultural, and comparative perspectives. These fellowships do not support creative work (see fellowship opportunity in Music Performance), or scholarship primarily focused on Drama (see fellowship opportunity in Theater Studies). In accordance with the fellowship program's overall goal of supporting early mid-career artists and scholars, applicants should have a promising record of scholarly accomplishment that includes one major project. Note that the fellowship funds are intended mainly to support time for scholarly work; they do not underwrite publication, advertising, or promotional costs.
