Funding for International Internships from the University of Minnesota

Hello everyone,

Greetings from Bulgaria! I hope that you are having a great time during the break. Here is some information about funding for international internships from the University of Minnesota. I am not sure that It was available last year, and it seems like a great opportunity:

OIP International Internship Awards
Deadline noon on Jan. 29, 2007

This all-University international internship competition supports current University of Minnesota graduate and professional degree students undertaking international internships. Awards will be up to $5,000 and are intended to underwrite travel and living expenses incurred in internships abroad.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
