Applications Invited for Summer AT&T New Media Fellowships

 

Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies announces AT&T New Media fellowships of up to $3,500 for the 2012 summer break. The fellowships are intended for Brown students who are pursuing innovative international projects during the break that address global policy issues or critical needs in society – and who will document their experiences with new media on the Global Conversation.

Details are available at watsoninstitute.org/fellowships/. The deadline to apply is Monday, February 27, 2012.

The AT&T New Media Fellows Program is intended to focus on international issues and global social change. By using new media, students will illustrate innovative ideas and approaches to critical challenges and produce highly visible results that will, in turn, help to promote and inspire international social entrepreneurship and citizen engagement on campus and beyond.

The fellowships are made possible through generous grants from the AT&T Foundation and AT&T Corp. The first round of AT&T Media Fellowships was granted for the summer of 2010, and fellows’ work since then is documented throughout the Global Conversation website. Visit globalconversation.org/about-us to browse these fellows’ projects.
