Up to four awards will be available to pursue projects around an aspect of international contemporary or popular music as a cultural force for expression. Preference will be given to creative projects that are conveyed in a dynamic fashion and are accompanied by a feasible plan. In addition to presenting unique projects on music as a global force for mutual understanding, applicants must submit a documentation and outreach plan describing how they intend to share their activities with their peers during their Fulbright year abroad through mtvU print, broadcast and/or online mediums.
Applicants are encouraged to consider all aspects of the power of music in developing their proposals. Along with the study of music in a specific cultural context, proposals will be considered in other music-related fields including music and social activism; music in learning; music and the community, and musical performance.
Preference will be given to graduating seniors who meet all host country requirements, including those related to language, affiliation and program start dates. Applications for all countries where there is an active U.S. Fulbright Student Program are encouraged.
- Be a U.S. citizen at the time of application;
- Have a bachelor's degree or equivalent before the start of the grant period;
- Have sufficient proficiency in the host country's language;
- Be in good health.
Graduating seniors, graduates students, and alumni are all welcome to apply.
Cornell's participation is administered by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, www.einaudi.cornell.edu.
