Carol Gordon Professional Development Scholarship
The Carol Gordon Professional Development Scholarship was created by the Gordon Institute for Music Learning to honor Carol Goodridge Beccue Gordon’s contributions to Music Learning Theory. The purpose of this scholarship is to advance the mission of GIML through supporting university faculty interested in learning more about Gordon’s Music Learning Theory and incorporating it into their teaching of future music educators.

  1. Must be a college/university music faculty teaching general music, instrumental, or choral methods courses within a music education program.
  2. Must be a first time attendee of a GIML Professional Development Course.
  3. Must complete application form.
Each scholarship will cover 100% of the course registration and tuition fees (approximately $650). Scholarship recipients are responsible for the cost of housing (if applicable), transportation, meals, required workshop materials, and optional additional tuition for graduate credits. The number of scholarships provided each year will depend on availability of funds and sites each year.

Final selection of the scholarship winner(s) will be decided by the Executive Board of the Gordon Institute of Music Learning. No member of the GIML Executive Board, or his or her immediate family, is eligible for scholarship assistance during his or her tenure on the Executive Board.

The Education Committee Chair will notify the chosen scholarship recipient(s) of the Executive Board's decision. The scholarship payment will be made upon verification of applicant’s attendance at the selected Professional Development course. Payment will be made to the Gordon Institute for Music Learning. The scholarship recipient should submit to GIML a one-page follow-up statement in which he or she reflects on his or her experiences in the course and the ways in which he or she expects these experiences to impact future teaching.
