Grant Opportunities

Ronald Barnes Memorial Grants (for study/research)

To honor Ronald Barnes' extraordinary contributions to the North American carillon art, the Guild established the Memorial Fund in 1998 for individuals to pursue studies, within North America, in North American carillon performance, composition, music history or instrument design. Application for the grant is open to all North Americans. The decision of the Barnes jury is announced at the annual GCNA congress held in June each year.
