2003 teacher enrichment grants awarded. (Foundation News).

Twelve teachers received grants this year from the FOUNDATION. Ten thousand dollars was awarded to assist recipients in their continuing educational and professional development. This year's grants were awarded to Michelle Gutz-Kleng, advanced study in theory to qualify for MTNA Professional Certification; Michele Alspach, piano study: Rhonda Ringering, jazz piano study; Jennifer Teague-Porterfield, in-depth training in the Suzuki method for teaching violin and cello to young children; Christine Groth, piano study; Amy Greer, Dalcroze Eurhythmics workshop; Beth Owen, baroque performance institute; Charlotte Williams, piano study; Kim Bowman, courses to qualify for MTNA Professional Certification; Daniel Brugh, composition lessons; Carrie Koffman, commissioning of new work for saxophone and viola; and Rachel Shaftman, drumset study.

Teacher Enrichment Grants are awarded in the amount of $1,000, $750, $500 or $250 and may be used for private study, college-level course work, or special projects in performance, pedagogy, music theory and composition. The grant is not intended to be used to pursue course work toward a degree or for ongoing projects. However, a grant may be approved for one additional year at the discretion of the Teacher Enrichment Grant Committee. The number of grants awarded in any year are determined by the number of qualified applicants and the available funds.

Grant applications and guidelines for 2004 will be available September 1. Applications are due in the MTNA national headquarters office by mid-January, and grant recipients will be announced at the 2004 MTNA National Conference in Kansas City, Missouri, in March. Funds are distributed no later than May 1, 2004.
