Elnora Harman Stickley Travel Grant Application
Made possible by the Elnora Harman Stickley Investment, grants are available each year for student winners and/or IMTA Board Members to attend the MTNA National Conference held in March/April. The awarding of the funds is overseen by the IMTA Board of Trustees each year.
All current IMTA Board Members (including Local Association and Collegiate Chapter Presidents) are eligible to apply. If a member of the Board of Trustees is also serving a position on the IMTA Board, then he/she is still eligible to apply for a Stickley grant but will excuse himself/herself from the deliberations.
Student competitors who will be competing in the national competitions are also eligible to apply. This includes:
1. MTNA Performance Competitions winners from the East Central Division who must travel to the national conference for the finals.
2. MTNA Composition Competition winners who must travel to the national conference to present their winning composition and accept their award. (These national winners are known prior to the national conference.)
3. Other finalists or winners who must travel to the national conference as part of their obligation to MTNA; for example, the MTNA Studio Fellowship winner.
The application deadline is January 31, 2022. Notification regarding the status of applications will be given within two weeks by the IMTA President and awarded funds will be distributed by the end of February.
