Call for Student Researchers

Claflin students are back on campus this week to begin fall classes, and the time has come to choose two of them to work with the Orangeburg MUSIC Project! Thanks to support from the South Carolina Arts Commission’s Folklife and Traditional Arts Grant, the Project will employ two student researchers to continue our cultural survey of musicians in the county. Students, if you’re reading this and wondering how to apply, see my e-mail to the student body this week and read those attachments. Last time I put a call out, the competition was fierce, so I look forward to hearing from some excellent applicants!
