LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A University of Louisville graduate student has been named a George J. Mitchell scholar.

The school says in a statement that music student James May is one of 12 students across the nation - and the first at UofL - to be selected for the Ireland postgraduate study that includes tuition, accommodations, travel expenses and a stipend.

May plans to student new music production and performance while studying in Ireland.

School of Music Dean Chris Doane says May's work as a composer, volunteer, teacher and leader is an inspiration to those around him.

The Pittsburgh native has created and penned more than a dozen compositions and currently teaches contemporary music at Louisville's Youth Performing Arts School. May graduated from The College of Wooster with degrees in music composition and English.
