With a commitment of $750,000 in funding from the office of the President of Johns Hopkins University, Peabody’s Dean’s Excellence Accelerator Awards are designed to advance the careers of Conservatory faculty by helping to underwrite their professional activity both on and off the Peabody campus.

The three-year pilot program—beginning with the first awards in the 2023-24 academic year—will award grants of $5,000 to $50,000 to eligible faculty who have taught at the Conservatory for at least three years. Independent projects in the areas of performance, creative work, research, scholarship, and/or teaching will be considered for support.

Initial proposals are due in the fall semester to be considered for funding for the following academic year.
