Student Travel Grants

Travel grants through The CMS Fund are available to assist student members in attending the 2019 CMS National Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, October 24–26.


Current student membership in The College Music Society is required to apply for a travel grant ($100 and more). Please check the status of your membership by logging into the CMS website and noting the welcome text in the upper, right-hand portion of the home page.

Presenting on the conference program is not a requirement. All complete grant applications will be considered. Priority will be given to new student members of CMS and first-time National Conference attendees.

N.B. Presidents of Student Chapters and Student Advisory Council members receive support through other means and are thus not eligible for this award.
