UMD Professor Presented Prestigious
McKnight Presidential Fellow Award

Associate Professor of Music, Theodore A. Schoen.

UMD Associate Professor of Music, Theodore A. Schoen has been presented the prestigious McKnight Presidential Fellow Award by the University of Minnesota and the McKnight Foundation. The award is given to recognize high levels of faculty excellence, and to support the university's most promising faculty at critical stages in their careers. Professor Schoen is a professor of woodwinds, specializing in clarinet and saxophone.

Winners are identified as leaders in their fields as exhibited by "records of scholarship, publications, external funding, invited presentations and symposia addresses, significant awards, and other evidence of recognition for research and scholarship."

The award provides approximately $15,000 in research-related support each year for three continuous fiscal years. Funds may be used for such purposes as research equipment and supplies, support for research assistants, sabbatical leave salary, professional travel, or other activities related to research.

The McKnight Presidential Fellow Award is targeted specifically to the most promising faculty granted tenure and promotion to associate professor, and was one of five faculty selections made this year through-out the University of Minnesota system.
