The Fellowship was established by the BMI Foundation and Mr. Carpenter's family, colleagues, and friends to honor the late co-composer of television themes and scores including The A-Team, Magnum P.I., The Rockford Files, Hardcastle and McCormick, Hunter and Riptide. The winners will work for 4-5 weeks on a day-to-day basis with Post, Pete Carpenter's composing partner and friend and writer of such TV themes as NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and Law & Order. Fellows also receive a $2,000 stipend for travel and expenses.
