Don’t forget – today’s the day to hit ‘submit’ on your #Fulbright -Clinton Fellowship applications! The deadline is 5 pm Eastern Time, but we recommend you submit a little earlier in case of any last minute questions or technical glitches.

“What’s the wall good for?” asks a song written and performed by HEARTBEAT, the band founded by #Fulbright -mtvU Fellow Adam Shneyer. The band, comprised of Israeli and Palestinian youths, is touring the U.S. and using their music to encourage peaceful discussions in the Middle East. 

We’ll be hosting a live concert for the public at the +U.S. Department of State in Washington, DC on Nov. 11. RSVP to join us!
