Virginia and George Bozarth Travel Fund

for musicological research in Austria

The Virginia and George Bozarth Travel Fund is intended to encourage and assist Ph.D. candidates, post-doctoral scholars, independent scholars, and junior faculty to travel to Austria to carry out research. The fund was spearheaded by George Bozarth (University of Washington) and named in memory of his parents. The current maximum award is $1,300.

Applications for the following AMS travel and research grants will be reviewed by a single committee. Since the terms for these grants have overlapping areas of emphasis, applicants may request to be considered for more than one, if appropriate. A place to indicate which travel/research grant(s) you wish to be considered for is given on the web form. Although applicants may request to be considered for several grants, one only may be awarded to successful applicants. No individual may receive a travel/research grant more than once in a three-year period.

Funds awarded in 2017 must be applied to travel/research undertaken between 1 May 2017 and 30 April 2018.
