Brown faculty members are invited to apply for grants supporting summer undergraduate research assistantships to work on new media components of research on global issues. The application deadline is March 15 for this summer's AT&T New Media Research Assistantships.

The Watson Institute has received a $145,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation and AT&T Corp. to develop the “Global Conversation,” an online media portal of documentary films, podcast series, and other audio/video addressing social challenges. Included in the initiative are AT&T New Media Research Assistantships.
