String Researcher Award

ASTA sponsors an annual award to recognize excellence in string research. The String Researcher Award is given to those whose work has contributed significantly to scholarship in string education and/or performance.

The 2020 award honors an early-career researcher whose scholarly work shows much promise in making continued important contributions to research. This award is given to junior higher-education faculty or public/private school or studio teacher who has completed a doctorate or terminal degree within the past 10 years. Nominees should have a record of demonstrated involvement in the following research activities: publication in juried research journals, research presentations at professional meetings, involvement in the strings community, and evidence of innovation in string research. The award will be presented at the 2020 ASTA National Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Nominations for the 2020 award are now closed. For details on nominations for the 2021 award, check back in September 2020.
