M. Elizabeth C. Bartlet Fund

for Research in France

The M. Elizabeth C. Bartlet Fund for Research in France is a memorial to M. Elizabeth C. Bartlet, one of the foremost scholars of French music from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Her research was centered in Paris, where she was a commanding and beloved presence in the libraries and archives. It is to be awarded annually to one or more doctoral students at or graduates of universities in the United States and Canada to conduct doctoral or post-doctoral musicological research in France. The current maximum award is set at $2,500.

Eligible applicants must currently attend or have graduated from a doctoral program in a North American university. If they seek to conduct research for their dissertation, they must have completed all other requirements for the Ph.D. If they seek to conduct post-doctoral research, they should have completed the Ph.D. within the past five years. Preference will be given to applicants whose home institutions do not offer financial support for musicological research.

The procedure consists of the following:

The application and all materials must be submitted by 5 p.m. EST, 1 April 2015.

• A 250-word summary of your proposal that briefly describes:

     a) the problem or question you are addressing in your research project
     b) the significance of the project
     c) what you expect to accomplish during the funding period.

     Additional space is then provided for you to discuss these three aspects of the proposal at greater length (500-, 200-, 150-word limit, respectively).

• A more detailed plan of work (500 words) that describes

     a) preliminary work already completed
     b) present state of the proposed research
     c) stages (if any) to be completed following the grant period.

• Three short questions complete the application: information regarding

     a) Institution(s) you intend to visit
     b) Itinerary
     c) Budget

You are also asked to supply one letter of support to be sent to the AMS by a scholar familiar with your work. It may be e-mailed or faxed to the AMS office. Please communicate with the office if questions arise.
