Postmark Deadline: March 1, 2003 The ASCAP Foundation/Morton Gould Young Composer Awards are open to composers in all musical genres and are intended to encourage developing music creators during the earliest stages of their careers. Named in honor of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and former ASCAP President Morton Gould, the cash prizes are awarded each year to composers who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States or have a student visa and are under 30 years of age. The winning composers share over $30,000 in ASCAP Foundation Awards, including the annual Leo Kaplan Award in memory of the distinguished jurist and music lover who served from 1967-1995 as ASCAP Special Distribution Advisor, and a grant from the Meyer Fund for our youngest creators, K-12th grade.
