Receipt Deadline: April 1, 2003 Meet The Composer announces its newest grant program, Meet The Composer's Global Connections, which aims to create support for composers to share their work with a global community. The program is open to composers working professionally at all career stages. Grants will be made to composers to cover travel, accommodation, and per diem costs related to travel abroad for the live performance of their works or for research and development. Grants will range from $500 to $5000. Global Connections helps ensure that international audiences see and hear the impressive and creative range of work offered by today's living composers. It also helps support the creative and professional development of living composers through the performance of their work worldwide. Applications must be submitted jointly by a composer and a hosting organization. The purpose of Global Connections is to foster international exchange. The composer and hosting organization must not be based in the same country, therefore, and one of the two must be based in the US.
