The deadline is approaching, but there is still time to apply for The Eastman School of Music’s Paul R. Judy Center for Innovation and Research Grant Program. Proposals are due October 1, 2017. Click here for more information and to apply!
The grant program provides funding for research and projects related to the topic of innovative ensembles, which the Center defines as: influenced by both the symphony orchestra and the chamber music traditions, with a focus on creative, artist-centered ensembles that reflect new models of artistic innovation, organizational relationships, and operational sustainability. Anyone based in North America may apply. Below are descriptions of the two grant categories:
Research Support. Interested individuals may submit a proposal to support a research project with a focus on creative, artist-centered ensembles that reflect new models of artistic innovation, organizational relationships, and operational sustainability. A particular area of research that the Center would like to support is analyzing how orchestras and similar large performing organizations can utilize and apply (or already have) the successful practices and models implemented by smaller, innovative or “alternative” ensembles. Funding may go toward travel, lodging, or other costs in order to complete the project. [But not food] Research papers/articles produced through a research grant will be eligible for publication in INNOVATE. LEAD. MUSIC., a semi-annual magazine published by the Eastman School of Music.
Innovative Projects. Individuals, ad hoc groups, and pre-formed ensembles may apply for support for a project structured around the concept of an innovative ensemble. This category is intentionally broad and may encompass a wide range of activities. A few examples of projects include educational outreach programs, concerts, and recording projects.
