Eugene K. Wolf Travel Fund

for European Resarch

The Eugene K. Wolf Travel Fund is intended to encourage and assist Ph.D. candidates in all fields of musical scholarship to travel to Europe to carry out the necessary work for their dissertation on a topic in European music. The fund will award one or more travel grants each year to students attending North American universities who have completed all requirements except the dissertation for the Ph.D. in any field of musical scholarship and who need to undertake research in Europe toward the dissertation.

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. Even if you apply for more than one fund, you need only submit one letter. It may be e-mailed or faxed to the AMS office. Please communicate with the office if questions arise.
