A $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of State will support a UNC music department-led international hip-hop initiative.

The two-year award will allow a group of U.S. artists to travel to six countries to teach hip-hop to young people in areas of conflict.

The grant will also support several courses in the music department and cover tuition and stipend for a graduate student research assistant.
