The American Brahms Society is seeking applications for its Karl Geiringer Scholarship in Brahms Studies, from students in the final stages of preparing a doctoral dissertation written in English. Work relating to Brahms should form a significant component of the dissertation, but it need not be the exclusive or even primary focus. The society gives equal consideration to research in historical musicology, analysis, performance practice, and cultural history, among other arenas.

Completed applications will consist of a cover letter, including the applicant’s address, phone number, email address, and institutional affiliation; and a description of the project of no more than 500 words. Two confidential letters, including one from the dissertation adviser, should be submitted separately.

All materials should be submitted electronically, as pdf files, to Paul Berry at paul.berry -at- The deadline for submission of materials is June 15, 2020. Finalists will be invited to submit a sample chapter. Recipients will be notified by November.
