To give you a quick preview:

The Paul Charosh Independent Scholar Fellowship is intended to foster research by independent scholars and is open to anyone not teaching at an institution of higher learning, or who does so with a non-renewable contract of one year or less. The Anne Dhu McLucas Fellowship is designed to provide support to a graduate student conducting research (archival or fieldwork) on traditional music (music in the oral tradition) or Native American/First Nation music. The Robert Walser and Susan McClary Fellowship is intended to diversify the field of scholars working on American music by providing a six-month stipend of $11,000.00 for full-time PhD students. There are many other fellowships. Please take a moment to check them out.
