The PTG Foundation is now offering Research Grants for research pertaining to the science and history of the piano. Any original research project that aims to further the knowledge of the technical community and the public about the science or history of the piano, or the field of piano technology will be considered. Grants can be used to purchase equipment, to gain access to research materials, to compensate time spent in research, or in writing documents. Grant money can also be used in any other way that legitimately goes towards the respective research project.
Each grant is limited to a maximum of $1,000.00. Interested parties must fill out an application, and include detailed information about the project. The final decision will be made by the PTG Foundation Board when they meet at the PTG Annual Convention and Technical Institute.
To allow adequate time for review and processing by the committee, the deadline for grant applications is April 1st.
