The Serge Prokofiev Foundation is offering a scholarship in memory of Noëlle Mann, founder of the Serge Prokofiev Archive and the Centre for Russian Music at Goldsmiths, who died in 2010. Due to Noëlle’s activities over many years, Goldsmiths has become an important centre for the study of Russian music in the UK, with several other research collections of Russian materials in addition to that of the Prokofiev Archive itself.

The 2012 scholarship was awarded to Ondrej Gima. His research proposal, entitled "A critical understanding of Prokofiev's The Fiery Angel and construction of an Urtext edition of the 1920 vocal score", addresses research questions of real significance to Prokofiev scholarship. Ondrej estimates that 65-70% of the materials that he would require to undertake the project are in the Prokofiev Archive at Goldsmiths. His PhD studies would fit very well with the aspirations of the Prokofiev Foundation regarding both a complete edition and the proposed digitisation of materials.

He has been jointly supervised by Professor Alexander Ivashkin, Goldsmiths, University of London and Professor Simon Morrison, Princeton University, USA
