The SMT-40 Dissertation Fellowship Committee invites applications for the summer 2022 dissertation research fellowship. Fellowships include an award of $5,000 to support full-time dissertation research and writing over a minimum of two months. The committee will select up to two awardees. In keeping with the Society's mission to promote diversity and inclusivity, at least one of the two fellowships will support a topic in an area of music theory research that engages diversity or an applicant who contributes to the diversification of the SMT community. We encourage PhD candidates who will not have completed and defended their dissertation by summer 2022 to apply. Previous years' applicants are encouraged to reapply.
