Over the weekend, the World University Project site launched an announcement of the University Lives Collection:
Students worldwide are invited to produce and submit short ethnographic films about their university experience, using whatever technology they have. After their films are submitted online, and prizes have been offered for the very best submissions, the films will be catalogued and published online together with commentary by higher education experts.
We are hoping to hear about a successful grant application by the end of the month. In the meantime, we're looking for alternative sources of funding. If you or someone you know might be interested in sponsorship, contact the project. The project is expected to reach around 5k universities worldwide. We're looking for sponsors to:
- Donate your products as prizes
- Provide technology or marketing support
- Financially sponsor the project overall in a major way
