Berger - Berger - Carter Research Fellowship Call for Applications
Each year the Institute of Jazz Studies awards up to ten grants of $1,000 each to assist jazz researchers who want to use the Institute’s collections for their projects. Half of the awards are designated for students in the Rutgers-Newark Master’s Program in Jazz History and Research and half are awarded to scholars from other institutions or unaffiliated researchers.
This endowment was established in 1987 with a gift by composer/arranger/multi-instrumentalist Benny Carter (1907-2003) in memory of Morroe Berger, a close friend and Carter’s biographer who was a professor of sociology at Princeton University until his death in 1981. Carter’s initial gift was matched by the Berger family, who asked that Carter’s name be added to the Fund’s title. Carter, his wife Hilma, and other donors have regularly added to the endowment over the years. In 2017 Edward Berger, longtime IJS Associate Director, photographer, and jazz scholar, was added to the Fund’s title to honor his contributions to jazz. To date, over 70 awards have been given to scholars and students worldwide working in a variety of disciplines, including jazz history, musicology, bibliography and discography.
