Grants of up to $1,200 to USA, Canada, and International researchers for research projects and publications that focus on promoting classic song. Eligible applications may be submitted at any stage of research. Proposals from graduate students writing dissertations, independent scholars, and faculty will be considered.

The Thomas Hampson Fund was established in 2009 in honor of the OPUS Campaign and by the AMS in recognition of Hampson's outstanding contributions to the field of music as a performer, teacher, and scholar. The fund is dedicated to fostering editions and scholarship on classic song in all its contexts (including American song, contemporary song, etc.), as well as new and innovative technologies for promoting and understanding classic song via interactive media and the Internet.

The current maximum award is $1,200.

Applicants may submit proposals at any stage of their research: proposals from graduate students writing dissertations, independent scholars, and faculty will be considered.
