The American Brahms Society is seeking applicants for its Karl Geiringer Scholarship in Brahms Studies, an annual competition open to 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 primary focus.  The committee gives equal consideration to research in historical musicology, analysis, performance practice, and cultural history, among others.  The decision to award the scholarship, which carries a stipend of $2,000, rests with the Board of Directors. The results of the competition will be announced in late 2016, following the regular annual meeting of the Board.
