Music History Undergraduate Award for Civic Engagement

The Department of Musicology is offering a relatively new award recognizing outstanding service to the community on the part of undergraduate Music History majors. 'Community' is defined broadly to include any community that does not consist wholly of UCLA students, staff or faculty; 'service,' as a use of the training and expertise gained through the Music History major to enrich the lives of the members of that community.

The award recognizes only projects already undertaken or completed while the candidate has been in the Music History major.

Candidates should be in good academic standing  in the Music History major. To be considered for the award, please submit:

1. a short essay (not more than 3 double-spaced pages):
o describing the project or activity
o identifying the target community
o explaining how the project relates to your studies
o explaining how it contributes to the quality of life in that community
2. supporting materials, if any (e.g., lesson plans, videos...)


Please turn in all submissions via email  to the department's Student Affairs Officer Michele Yamamoto () by 4pm on the day of the deadline.
