FOR YOUTH/ *

*July 1-July 22, 2006, Wake Forest University, NC*

Are you interested in meeting young persons between the ages of 16 and 
19 from Europe and Eurasia? Do you have an interest in learning more 
about the transatlantic relationship, the role of a free press and the 
Internet in a democracy, and/or an interest in public or community 
service?  

The Department of Communications at Wake Forest University has available 
*/10 Scholarships for American students/*. These Scholarships include 
the following:

?        $2,500 scholarship; Designation as Benjamin Franklin 
Transatlantic Fellow (covers tuition, activities, travel, meals and 
lodging in a WFU dorm)

?        Participation in all Institute events, including classes in 
Constitutions, Media Literacy, Survey Research, Internet Communication, 
Community Advocacy; taught by Wake Forest and visiting faculty.

?        Educational Trip to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, PA

food from the participating countries; Old Salem and Colonial Williamsburg.

You would join 35 Fellows between the ages of 16 and 19 on Wake Forest 
campus for a three week Institute. Your classmates are from 30 countries 
ranging from Armenia to Tajikistan, Denmark to Kosovo and Malta to 
Lithuania. Participants will arrive at WFU on July 1 and depart on the 
22^nd of July. In addition to classes, the Institute features volunteer 
service projects, site visits (e.g., UNC-CH Institute for European 
Studies), and computer-training classes that will result in the building 
of a web-site and blogs. The objective of the program is to provide 
participants with a deeper understanding of the transatlantic 
relationship and how they in turn can influence others through media 
outlets, by examining freedom of speech issues, media ethics, and the 
role of the media in creating or solidifying stereotypes.
