I want to make you aware of a program we have at the University of Pittsburgh. It is the Hot Metal Bridge Program (HMBP) at the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and it is a two-semester post-baccalaureate fellowship program for students who will help us meet our diversity goals. We will provide a two-term fellowship (stipend, full tuition and health insurance) for fall and spring terms 2016-2017 for up to nine fellows. The point of the HMBP is to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate training program, and to help individuals prepare themselves for a successful program of doctoral studies.

 

The program is entering its sixth year. Our fellows have found the program beneficial to them being admitted into a doctoral program. In the six years of the program over 80% of the students have gone on to doctoral programs around the country. Some of the placements have been at the University of Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt, Northern Illinois, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Miami, Penn State University, and UCLA.

 

The featured programs for academic year 2016-2017 are: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, English, Mathematics, Neuroscience and Psychology. The application is now open for the HMB program: http://www.diversity.as.pitt.edu/hot-metal-bridge-program.

It is my pleasure to announce to you that the 2016 Southern Grad for a Day event will be Tuesday, February 16th beginning at 12:00 noon.

We want to share Georgia Southern University through the eyes of a Graduate Student. Your students will meet current Graduate Students over lunch, have a tour of campus and meet with a representative from their preferred program of interest. In order to ensure this day is perfect for your students, we have a few items that will need to be completed by them:

-Interested students must be juniors or seniors

-Students interested in attending the event will need to submit a registration form. This form will allow us to confirm that we have the program they are interested in and pre-qualify them.

-Students must have a 2.75 cumulative GPA

-Students invited to the event upon acceptance of their registration must submit a copy of their resume or vita

Please provide this information along with the link to our registration form: http://goo.gl/forms/w9uu68Gpkg

Conferences

We anticipate the ability to fund undergraduate student travel to the International Conference on Infancy Studies in New Orleans, LA, May 26-28, 2016.  Preference in the allocation of travel support funding will be given to undergraduates who are members of unrepresented groups in science.  We welcome applications from student authors whose work has been accepted for presentation at the conference and from students who are interested in learning more about infancy research.

 

Applicants must be enrolled as undergraduate students at the time of the award.  Criteria for the determination of awards will include:

1) applicant’s underrepresented-group status (ethnic and racial minorities, as well as members of various other diverse and underrepresented groups, are especially encouraged to apply; sex, ethnic, and racial minority status must be included in the application);
2) applicant’s personal statement regarding the award’s career impact potential;

3) applicant’s involvement to date in developmental research or preparation (e.g., coursework, relevant field experience, author on a poster accepted to the conference, etc.); and

4) financial need (include estimate of travel costs and other potential sources of funding such as support from college or university).
Applications for travel awards should be submitted electronically in one file to the ICIS website (http://apps.infantstudies.org/apply/2016undergradaward) by February 16, 2016, 8 pm EST.  When you first go to the website, you will be asked to create an account.  Once you do that you will see the call for applications.  Your application should include:
-A short (< 500 word) essay explicitly addressing the four criteria above, in the order listed, and

 

-A letter of support from a faculty member, submitted on college/university letterhead.  Faculty members should comment on student’s motivation to conduct or learn more about developmental research and how attending the conference will impact the student’s long term goals.  In addition, the committee would like to know whether the faculty member plans to attend the conference and whether he/she will be able to mentor the applicant to facilitate a positive conference experience.  If the faculty member cannot attend, a mentor will be assigned to the awardee by the ICIS Committee on Undergraduate Research.

 

Determination of award recipients and amounts will be conducted by the ICIS Committee on Undergraduate Research.  Funds may be used for transportation, lodging, food, and/or child-care expenses pertaining to attending the conference.  Distribution of monies is contingent upon proper documentation of expenses and submission of receipts.

Questions can be addressed to Sam Putnam (sputnam@bowdoin.edu) or Martha Arterberry (martha.arterberry@colby.edu).
