The Frederick R. Selch Award
The Frederick R. Selch Award, named for an important collector of American musical instruments who was a founding member and second president of AMIS, was established in 2004 to honor the best student paper presented at an annual meeting of the Society. Papers will be judged by a committee appointed by the President, which may include members of the Board of Governors, the program committee, or additional persons: a prize is awarded at their discretion. The prize will consist of $250 and a certificate. The first prize was awarded at the 2005 Annual Meeting.
