The H. Colin Slim Award
The H. Colin Slim Award honors each year a musicological article of exceptional merit, published during the previous year (2016) in any language and in any country by a scholar who is past the early stages of her or his career and who is a member of the AMS or a citizen or permanent resident of Canada or the United States. “Early stages” of the career is normally considered to mean no more than ten years beyond completion of the Ph.D. degree; if the nominator wishes to nominate an author who is fewer than ten years beyond the Ph.D., she or he should communicate with the AMS regarding the circumstances involved. “Previous year” refers to the de facto year of publication of the article. The award committee will encourage or, if necessary, limit eligibility according to these general guidelines.
The award committee, consisting of five scholars, will choose a single winner from among all the candidates. The winner will receive a monetary prize and a certificate, conferred at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation of the Society by the chair of the committee. An individual may receive the award only once.
Anyone may submit a nomination. Nominations, including self-nominations, must be submitted by 2 May 2017. Please use this form to submit your nomination. Additionally, the award committee may solicit the curriculum vitae of each nominee.
