Kevin Freeman Travel Grant
Share |

Kevin FreemnaThe Kevin Freeman Travel Grant is intended to support travel and hotel expenses to attend the Music Library Association annual meeting. Grant(s) include the conference registration fee and a cash award up to $750, subject to approval of the current year’s budget by the MLA Board. The applicant must be a member of the Music Library Association and either be in the first three years of his/her professional career, a graduate library school student aspiring to become a music librarian, or a recent graduate (within one year of degree) of a graduate program in librarianship who is seeking a professional position as a music librarian. At least one grant will be awarded to a first-time attendee, if applicable. Recipient(s) are announced each year at the MLA Annual Meeting. Calls for applications are issued in the Spring.

The Kevin Freeman Fund, endowed by contributions of members of the Northern and Southern California chapters as well as colleagues and friends of Kevin’s across the country, supports the Kevin Freeman Travel Grant. Few new members of the music library profession—as was Kevin—receive adequate funding from their institutions to attend and participate in the highly-valued annual meetings of the Music Library Association, their primary professional organization. The Kevin Freeman Travel Grant enables MLA to assist its newer members by supporting and encouraging their participation in the Association's national meeting.

Kevin Freeman (1953–1993) served as Head of Music Technical Services at Stanford University. He had worked previously at the University of California at Berkeley Music Library. Kevin was Chair of the Subject Access Subcommittee of MLA's Bibliographic Control Committee and was active in the Northern California Chapter, serving as Secretary-Treasurer, Vice-Chair, and Chair. Kevin was concerned about encouraging and developing young/new talent and believed strongly in MLA and its work. He was also known in the San Francisco area as a singer in the Symphony Chorus and Choral Artists of San Francisco. In the early 1980s he was a member of the male vocal ensemble, Chanticleer. A San Francisco native, Kevin graduated magna cum laude from the University of Utah with a B.A. in Music in 1977. He earned an M.A. in French Linguistics from Georgetown University in 1985, and an M.A. in Library and Information Science from the University of California/Berkeley in 1987.
