The Kinds of Kings Bouman Fellowship is an advocacy, access, and amplification program for composers with historically-marginalized identities in the early stages of their composing careers. Named after computer scientist Dr Katie Bouman, whose team gave the world the first image of a black hole, the Bouman Fellowship program's goals are:
to support and advocate for early-career composers
to create opportunities for composers from historically marginalized groups, and
to cultivate a sense of community and support.
