Contributing to the Society for American Music
The financial stability and furthering of our programmatic activity is predicated on the generosity of our members! While annual dues go to support the costs for producing the Bulletin, the Directory, and for your subscription to American Music, as well as to cover basic operating expenses, your dues do not support our special programs, or activities promoting American music both within and outside the Society, nor the dues discount for student and retired members.

- Irving Lowens Memorial Fund
Awards for outstanding books and articles
- Wiley Housewright Dissertation Award
Honors academic excellence
- H. Earle Johnson Subvention
Fund Subventions for books
- Adrienne Fried Block Fellowship
