I suppose this belongs in the links section, but it seemed like people interested in dance history would be the more likely audience:

FULBRIGHT ASSOCIATION INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR

COHEN AWARD FOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP ON DANCE

WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 11, 2001) -- The Fulbright Association has issued a

call for applications for the 2001 Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund for International

Scholarship on Dance Award. The award will enable a dance scholar to

present a major paper at the Fulbright Association's annual conference in

November. The award recipient will be chosen in a competition to be advised

by the founder of the fund, Dr. Selma Jeanne Cohen, preeminent dance

historian and founding editor of the International Encyclopedia of Dance.

Outstanding dance scholars are invited to apply for the award, which will

fund the recipient's travel and expenses in conjunction with the Fulbright

Association conference. The competition is open to all dance scholars.

Proposal guidelines are available from the Fulbright Association and are

posted on its web site at http://www.fulbright.org/.

The inaugural Selma Jeanne Cohen Award was presented to Fulbright alumna

Leslie Friedman. The award supported Dr. Friedman's lecture, "Expression in

Dance," delivered at the Fulbright Association's annual conference Nov. 30

through Dec. 3, 2000 in Washington, D.C.

Dr Friedman said, "I looked at how one culture might understand another

culture and my idea of dance as a doorway for that understanding."

Her paper was based on research conducted in India on Indian dance and

aesthetics.

The Fulbright Association is a private, non-profit organization that

supports and promotes the Fulbright Program, an international educational

and cultural exchange initiative created in 1946 by legislation sponsored by

the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. There are now over

200,000 Fulbright alumni throughout the world.
