ATT New Media Winter Fellowships for Brown Students – Deadline 11/8

The Watson Institute announces AT&T New Media fellowships of up to $1,500 for the winter break during December 2010 and January 2011. The fellowships are intended for Brown University students to pursue innovative international projects during the break that address global policy issues or critical needs in society – and to document their experiences with new media on the Global Conversation website. Details are available here. The deadline is November 8, 2010.

Separately, the Institute is offering to loan Flip video cameras to Brown students who have other international winter break plans already in place, to document their experiences on the Global Conversation website. The producer of the best short video will get to keep the Flip camera he or she made it with, in a Global Conversation Video Competition judged on social value, technical merit, and creativity. To enter, students must send an email to global_conversation@brown.edu summarizing their international winter break plans in 250 words or less. Up to 25 Flip cameras will be loaned based on merit, on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. To win, a video must be 6 minutes or under and be posted to the Global Conversation’s Vimeo page with a title and descriptive summary by February 1, 2011.

The AT&T New Media Fellows Winter Program and Global Conversation Video Competition are 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 and competition 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 is documented on the Global Conversation website and in an article on last summer’s AT&T New Media Fellows here.

Underwater Archaeology Scholarship

We wanted to inform you about the Women Divers Hall of Fame Cecelia Connelly Memorial Scholarship for Underwater Archaeology. Mary Connelly contacted us about this scholarship which was named after my mother. Cecelia Connelly had a deep and abiding fascination with history, archaeology and the ocean. She had been a diving instructor of some repute and had been inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame in 2000. When she died of cancer in 2003, her family set up this scholarship within the Women Divers Hall of Fame, as she had been a very proud member of the organization.
The scholarship is for $2500, to be used to support a woman graduate or undergraduate student, currently enrolled and in good standing, in an accredited academic program in Underwater Archaeology.The information on the website, details not only the process for applying for the Cecelia Connelly scholarship, but also the complete list of scholarships available through the Women Divers Hall of Fame. The website is www.wdhof.org/index2.shtml and all applications are due November 15, 2008. If you or anyone you know has any questions please contact Mary Connelly at Mary_Connelly@uml.edu.
If you know of a female student who might be interested in this scholarship, please let them know about this opportunity.
