Each year, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation awards mid-career fellowships to 200 applicants in fields ranging from choreography to plant sciences. Two of the 2013 fellows are Kansas City locals: Mike Sinclair, architectural and fine art photographer; and Narong Prangcharoen, UMKC alumnus and teaching assistant of composition and piano, and freelance composer. Prangcharoen's fellowship is in music composition.
