The Watson Institute announces fellowship opportunities for undergraduate research and community service overseas during the summer of 2012.

AT&T New Media Fellowships of up to $3,500 are intended for Brown students who are pursuing innovative international projects addressing global political, social, or cultural matters – and who will document their experiences with new media on the Global Conversation website. The fellowships are made possible through a grant from AT&T Corp. Deadline to apply is February 27, 2012.

The Jack Ringer Summer in Southeast Asia Fellowship, co-administered with the Swearer Center for Public Service, was made possible by the late Jack Ringer '52, who served in Burma after graduating from Brown. The award provides Brown students with up to $3,500 to support summer travel to Southeast Asia to conduct research or work in an internship. The deadline to apply is March 2, 2012.

The Marla Ruzicka International Public Service Fellowship, co-administered with the Swearer Center, provides support of up to $3,500 for the summer plans of one Brown University undergraduate who is pursuing international human rights, post-conflict rehabilitation, or international public service. It was established in honor of human rights activist Marla Ruzicka by Lucinda B. Watson, daughter of the late Thomas J. Watson, Jr. '37 and member of the Watson Institute Board of Overseers. The deadline to apply is March 2, 2012.
