Ronald Barnes Memorial Grant

To honor his extraordinary contributions to the North American carillon art, we established the Ronald Barnes Memorial Grant fund in 1998. It helps North Americans pursue studies in carillon performance, composition, music history, or instrument design. Since 2007, we've awarded over US$140,000 to fund more than 2 dozen research projects.

Grants for student composer-performer pairs

We believe that commissioning composers early in their careers leads them to discover their love for the carillon and their skill in writing for it. That's why we offer grants giving student composer-performer pairs the opportunity to collaboratively create and premiere a new composition for carillon. Since 2021, we've awarded $US5,000 to 5 student pairs.
