2004 Teacher Enrichment Grants awarded.

Eleven teachers received grants this year from the MTNA FOUNDATION FUND. A total of $10,350 was awarded to recipients to help fund continuing education and professional development projects. This year's grants were awarded to Sherry Burns, Ohio; Kathleen Christensen, Washington; Roberta Goodman, Texas; Darlene Handa, Ohio; Cynthia Hartley, Utah; Robin Kieckhaefer, Iowa; Shandra Love-Barrientes, Virginia; Ellen McQuilken, Oregon; Zanna Noe, Indiana; Paula Oby, Ohio; and Elizabeth Stavrou, Minnesota.

Teacher Enrichment Grants 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, for travel funds or for ongoing projects. However, a grant may be approved for one additional year at the discretion of the Teacher Enrichment Grant Evaluation Committee. The number of grants awarded in any year is determined by the number of qualified applicants and available funds. All Teacher Enrichment Grants are provided by the MTNA FOUNDATION FUND general endowment and named endowment funds.

Grant applications and guidelines for 2005 will be available September 1, 2004. Applications are due in the MTNA national headquarters office postmarked no later than January 10, 2005, and grant recipients will be announced at the 2005 MTNA National Conference in Seattle, Washington, in April. Funds are distributed no later than May 1.
