The Society for Ethnomusicology is pleased to announce streamlined procedures for its Diversity Action Programs for 2015. For both the Annual Meeting Subvention Awards and the Book Subvention Award, the Society requests an email of application or an email of nomination, plus a copy of the candidate’s CV.

Please consider nominating eligible candidates for these awards! If you are an eligible candidate, SEM strongly encourages you to apply or to ask someone else to nominate you!

The strength of SEM’s voice in the academy and public sphere on issues of social import ties directly to the diversity of perspectives that we share through our annual conferences and other communications. Make sure your voice is heard.

Please note the following information about the awards:

Annual Meeting Subvention Awards. To provide Annual Meeting travel support to students from groups that have experienced discrimination. Preference will be given to graduate students and to individuals who are delivering a presentation at the meeting. Each award includes $750 for travel expenses plus an optional $50 for a mentoring lunch. SEM expects to make up to 6 awards for 2015.

 Application deadline: July 1, 2015.
