The Guild of Carillonneurs in North America is dedicated to promoting the art of the carillon, including the development of proficient carillonneurs and the building of new carillons, the improvement of existing installations, and the composition and distribution of carillon music.
To advance this mission, GCNA invites applications for its Ronald Barnes Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship grant of up to $11,500 honors Ronald Barnes' passion for American carillon music by helping to provide an opportunity to pursue studies, within North America, in carillon performance, composition, music history, and/r instrument design.
Through the annual program, scholarships grants will be awarded in support of research and projects that promote the growth and vitality of North American carillon culture.
The scholarship is open to any person in North America, and successful applicants have up to two years to complete the project.
See the GCNA website for complete program guidelines, information about past scholarship recipients, and application instructions and deadlines.
