Ian Davidson, a professor in the School of Music at Texas State University, has been named a U.S. Fulbright Scholar and awarded a grant to visit Tumaini University Makumira in Tanzania May 5-26, and again Jan. 1-21, 2014.

As a visiting scholar to the university, Davidson will provide compositional, performance and recording experiences for current students through seminars, performances and collaborative projects. He will also assist in the assessment and development of the school’s undergraduate music curriculum and resources with emphasis on composition, recording and performance.

The worldwide success of the Fulbright Scholar Program has been built on the talent, commitment and professionalism of scholars who have served universities and research institutions in more than 155 countries.
