IIE: The Fulbright-MTV university award

On behalf of the U.S. Department of State and MTV university (a new online station directed at university students), the Institute of International Education (IIE) is pleased to announce a new U.S. Fulbright Student Program opportunity for the 2007-2008 academic year. The Fulbright-mtvU award, administered by IIE, will award grants to up to four unique projects on "the power of music" as a global force for mutual understanding of international contemporary issues.

Proposals may treat music in a specific cultural context or ethnomusicology, yet can also cover other music-related fields including, for example, music and social activism, music in learning, music and the community and musical performance.

Applicants must apply to a country where there is an active U.S. Fulbright Student Program and meet all potential host country requirements, including those related to language and program start dates. Applications for all world regions are encouraged. In addition to the application, all candidates must also submit an outreach plan describing how they intend to share activities with their peers during their Fulbright year abroad through mtvU print, broadcast and/or online mediums.
