Fulbright-mtvU Awards (open to US Citizens)

Fulbright-mtvU Awards

2016-2017 Competition Opens November 2, 2015

Up to four Fulbright-mtvU awards will be available. Applications will be accepted for any country to which there is an active Fulbright U.S. Student Program for Academic and Arts fields. Projects should center around research on an aspect of international musical culture, and should focus on contemporary or popular music as a cultural force for expression or change.
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. The Documentation and Outreach Plan form must be uploaded as part of the Fulbright application. Upload instructions can be found in the application.
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 and recent graduates who meet all host country requirements, including those related to language, affiliation and program start dates. Please refer to the Participating Country Summaries for details.
