The Ghana National Music Festival
Student Fellowship Award
One of our most exciting additions to the GNMF was the creation of the Student Fellowship. This is a position open to any undergraduate music student in the USA. The SF recipients will have the opportunity to attend the 2017 festival as a student and as a staff member. Recipients will assist GNMF faculty with academic and administrative duties throughout the festival but will also have the opportunity to offer a 30-minute recital.
Our first Fellow was Georgia native, Wesley Philips. Wesley was instrumental in the high academic quality offered in 2017 and we are excited to see him back as faculty in future editions. The 2019 Fellowship applications have closed and reviews of applications have begun. The 2019 fellow will be announced in late January.
