To Whom It May Concern:
We are so pleased to announce the inaugural call for applications for
the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO Laura W. Bush Traveling
Fellowship. This fellowship, whose funding has generously come from a
private donation, is intended to help fund proposals by American college
students to carry out brief work, about 4 to 6 weeks, in foreign
countries on topics related to the mandate of the United Nations
Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and that seek to build strong ties among nations.
In order to catch University students who may be planning projects for
this summer, the deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 23rd at
We plan for the Award to be distributed twice per year, once during
Spring/Summer and once during Fall/Winter. The value of the fellowship
may vary. The expected value in 2008 is $2,500 per fellowship.
Please help spread the word to qualified applicants by forwarding this> link to any people you think may be interested.
