Music Theory

Student Research Assistance Fund

Due to generous faculty and alumni donations to a new fund in support of student research, applications are invited from music theory students for grants to support specific research projects.  Grants will typically be made in amounts of $300 or less. 

Awards will be made by a committee consisting of the chair of music theory, plus one tenured and one untenured member of the theory department, each of whom serves for not less than one academic year.

Applications must be for an individual expenditure that is essential to the development or completion of a music theory research project.  Examples include cost of specialized software for research, travel to present research at a conference, preparing music examples for a publication, or visiting an archive overseas, etc.

Students are expected to utilize funding sources already available to them (e.g., Professional Development Funds) prior to applying for SRAF funding.

To apply for the award, download and fill out the form below, and submit it to the department chair. Deadlines for proposals to be reviewed are November 15 and April 15 of each year.
