The American Musicological Society's purpose is to advance scholarship in the various fields of music through research, learning, and teaching. To do this, it publishes a Journal and a Blog, holds an Annual Meeting, supports books in musicology, and offers a broad array of grants, fellowships, and awards throughout the year.


The Holmes / D'Accone Endowment now supports a half-year Fellowship

Through the generosity of Frank D’Accone, the Holmes / D’Accone Endowment for research in opera studies established in 2011 is now transitioning to the status of Fellowship. The new William F. Holmes / Frank D’Accone Dissertation Fellowship in Opera Studies is a six-month fellowship with a stipend of $12,000. The fellowship application process is similar to the AHJ AMS 50 and Howard Mayer Brown Fellowships; the inaugural Holmes / D’Accone Fellowship deadline is 15 December 2018, and it will be awarded in spring 2019 for the academic year 2019–20.
