|This prize is given annually to celebrate the “achievements of an outstanding faculty innovator.” This $25,000 award helped fund an initiative providing research opportunities for undergraduate students, who were able to contribute directly to multiple ongoing lab projects. Funds from this award were used to send students to several major music conventions to test professional and aspiring professional musicians. The overall goal of this project was to better understand the relationship between musical training and musical perception. It was also used to promote public interest in the growing field of music cognition (click here for more information).|
