Van L. Lawrence Fellowship

The Voice Foundation and NATS Foundation present the Van L. Lawrence Fellowship

 

MatthewHoch_vanLawThe Van Lawrence Fellowship Award is given jointly by the National Association of Teachers of Singing Foundation (NATS Foundation) and The Voice Foundation. Application submission deadline for 2017 is November 15th, 2016.

The fellowship was created by The Voice Foundation and the NATS Foundation to honor Van L. Lawrence, M.D., for his outstanding contribution to voice, and particularly to recognize the importance of the interdisciplinary education he fostered among laryngologists and singing teachers. The Fellowship winners are members of the National Association of Teachers of Singing who are actively engaged in teaching, have demonstrated excellence in their profession as singing teachers, and have shown interest in Filipa La accepting the 2015 Van L. Lawrence Felloswship by Skypeand knowledge of voice science. The Fellowship and $2000 award are intended to provide opportunities for the Fellow to become more thoroughly acquainted with practices, techniques, technology and people involved in laryngology and voice science. It is hoped that the opportunities and contacts provided through the Fellowship experience will enhance the teacher’s ability to do meaningful interdisciplinary research, and will encourage the teacher to apply appropriate voice science advances in the studio.
