An M-Cubator grant provides seed funding of up to $1000 for a student/students to pursue creative or scholarly projects in music that are entrepreneurial in nature and extracurricular in scope. Special consideration will be given to projects with specifically defined outcomes and the potential to make a significant impact on the field or on society at large. Examples might include—but are by no means limited to—community engagement initiatives, non-profit ventures, scholarly projects, technological innovations, or establishment of a new professional ensemble.
