The purpose of this program is to support a broad spectrum of research conducted by society members. The research leading to publication on musical topics involving women’s, gender, and sexuality studies will get funded through this fellowship. The preference will be given to those research projects that resonate with the primary research areas that Prof. Tick focused on throughout their distinguished career, including women’s music-making across time and musical genres; musical biography; and source studies in American music.
Scholars will get this fellowship at any phase of their career. Judith Tick Fellowship will cover expenses associated with but not limited to research, books, travel, and media resources. One award will be granted in every cycle. The amount of the award of each cycle will be varied depending on the interest generated by its endowment. The maximum award amount is $1,000. All the recipients are required to submit a one-page budget and final report to the executive director of the society no more than one year after the award is granted. Society for American Music intends to empower its member to indulge in researches associated with the topics that have been the focus of Judith Tick across their career journey. The reason behind initiating this scheme is to make available funding support for talented researchers so that they can conduct powerful and effective researches and grow their careers.
Society for American Music has been working since 1975 when it was established. Firstly, this organization was named in the honor of Oscar G. T. Sonneck, early Chief of the Music Division in the Library of Congress and pioneer scholar of American music. It is a non-profit scholarly and educational organization that has also been working as a constituent member of the American Council of Learned Societies.
