Pioneer Scholarship
Recipients

AHEPA Management
Company Program Awarded
$90,000 Grant
AHEPA Management Company (AMC) has been awarded
a $90,000 Research: Art Works grant by the National
Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The grant will support a
study examining the effects of music engagement on low-income, older adults.
"The arts reflect the vision, energy, and talent of
America's artists and arts organizations," NEA Chairman
Jane Chu said. "Research that illuminates the value and
impact of the arts, like the work from AHEPA Management
Company, is essential to better tell the story of how the arts
influence our lives."
The study is made available through a collaborative
approach involving LinChiat Chang, Ph.D., as Principal
Investigator; Helen Kivnick, Ph.D., University of Minnesota;
Judith-Kate Friedman, Founder of Songwriting Works, and
Linda Duncan, gerontologist, assistant vice president of
AHEPA Management Company, as project director.
In partnership with Songwriting Works Educational
Foundation, professional musicians will implement a threemonth songwriting program for approximately 1,000 older
adults who reside in 20 affordable senior housing communities located in four states. The study will examine the
physical, cognitive, social, and emotional effects of music
engagement on low-income, older adults. Pre- and post-assessments as well as interim and follow-up assessments will
test whether arts programming boosts residents' chances
of thriving in an independent living setting. Evidence from
this study could be used to help inform funding and policy
decisions about housing interventions for older adults in
low-income communities.
