She received a Fellowship Grant from the Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Germany in 1997, and relocated to Berlin at the conclusion of the residency. Szlavnicsattended Walter Zimmermann's composition seminar at the University of the Arts, and subsequently taught the seminar for one year. Szlavnics was awarded the Joseph S. Stauffer Prize as "Outstanding Composer" in 2010.
