Two UChicago Graduate Students Receive Coveted AMS Fellowships

In celebration of their musicological scholarship, two UChicago doctoral students recently received fellowships from the American Musicological Society, reinforcing the University’s prominent presence among award winners. Jessica Gabriel Peritz and Tommaso Sabbatini were the recipients of the 2018 Alvin H. Johnson AMS 50 Dissertation Award. Their two dissertation awards represented half of the four AMS dissertation awards given in 2018. Peritz also received the AMS Paul A. Pisk Prize. The AMS 50 Dissertation Award grants one-year fellowships of $22,000 to each recipient, based solely on academic merit, and is intended to support the completion of the fellow’s doctoral dissertation.
