SMT-40 Dissertation Fellowship

In March of 2016, the Society for Music Theory’s Executive Board voted to establish the SMT-40 Dissertation Fellowship, to be given annually with an inaugural award of $3500 in 2017. The first dissertation fellowship in the nearly 40-year history of the SMT, the award is made possible by support from SMT-40. Guidelines and an application form are here. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2016.

SMT Mission Statement

The Society for Music Theory promotes the development of and engagement with music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We construe this discipline broadly as embracing all approaches, from conceptual to practical, and all perspectives, including those of the scholar, listener, composer, performer, teacher, and student. The Society is committed to fostering diversity, inclusivity, and gender equity in the field.
