Abstract

Reel Change: The Fund for Diversity in Film Scoring is a five-year grant and mentorship program for film composers of diverse ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and abilities that are historically underrepresented in film composition. The fund assists US-based projects currently in production/post-production where additional support and/or mentoring would be beneficial to film composers who are at a pivotal point in their career in which the project will help them break through to the next stage of their profession.

Christophe Beck, in partnership with SESAC, initiated this fund to encourage and support talented film composers whose voices have been excluded from an almost entirely white, male world. In 2020, 95% of the top 250 films at the box office were scored by men; and there are no statistics available about the representation of BIPOC composers in film scoring.

Eligibility

The fund accepts applications from US-based composers.

Abstract

Since 1963, the CINTAS Foundation has awarded over 24 fellowships in music composition. In addition to supporting Cuban artists, many early in their careers, the CINTAS Foundation also maintains a growing collection of works by past awardees and other esteemed Cuban artists. For the purpose of historical value and documentation, award recipients are encouraged to submit signed music scores (i.e., representative samples of their work) to be added to the CINTAS Fellows Collection after the grant period.

Eligibility

Creative artists of Cuban citizenship or direct lineage (having a Cuban parent or grandparent). Performing artists are not eligible to apply for CINTAS Fellowships. CINTAS Fellowships can only be awarded a maximum of 2 times to an individual.

Abstract

Cornell University's Society for the Humanities invites applications for the Mellon postdoctoral fellowship in music. This enables an early-career scholar working on music and Blackness across Africa and the African diaspora to teach courses and seminars, and participate in relevant events while in residence at the university. While the specific area of specialization is open, work that challenges geographic and disciplinary boundaries and that explicitly engages critical race theory and Black studies in innovative ways is of particular interest. Any combination of historical, ethnographic and analytical methods may be used. The fellow will be expected to offer undergraduate music courses and interdisciplinary graduate seminars on Blackness and anti-Blackness in the African diaspora or in the specific context of the African American experience.

Eligibility

Applicants must have received a PhD degree after 1 September 2015 and no later than 30 June 2021.
