National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program

The NDSEG Fellowship Program is a three-year funding opportunity for students in or near the beginning stages of their overall graduate study and it is meant for students who plan to pursue research-based doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.

The program provides awarded fellows with:

•       36 months of full tuition and mandatory fee coverage at any accredited U.S. institution;
•       A $1,000 medical health insurance allowance per each year of the three-year program tenure;
•       And $102,000.00 in stipend payments over three years.

Students can start applying to the program as early as their undergraduate senior year and as late as the start of their third year of overall graduate study.

The reason we are getting in touch with you today is because we would like to introduce this fellowship opportunity to you and your colleagues.

This year’s deadline for a 2017 award is December 9 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

If this is of interest to you or your colleagues, please let us know!  We’re happy to answer any and all questions related to the program.

Additionally – if you or colleagues at your institution are eligible and interested, panelist registration for the 2017 NDSEG Digital Application Evaluation is now open at https://ndseg.asee.org/panelists. This year’s evaluation panel will be held digitally throughout the month of January 2017. For more information, please contact our team directly.

CSU Putnam Seminar

The Putnam is an annual mathematics competition for college students, and a fun way to expose yourself to new challenging math problems. In Spring 2016 we will be holding Putnam practice sessions on Mondays at 5:00-6:00pm in Weber 201. The emphasis will be on learning from each other, so please stop by and share your ideas. For more information, see the Spring 2016 flyer (http://www.math.colostate.edu/~adams/putnam/PutnamFlyer.pdf), the CSU Putnam website (http://www.math.colostate.edu/~adams/putnam/), or email Henry Adams at adams@math.colostate.edu.

MSRI Undergraduate Program

The MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI-UP) is a comprehensive summer program designed for undergraduate students who have completed two years of university-level mathematics courses and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences.  The main objective of the MSRI-UP is to identify talented students, especially those from underrepresented groups, who are interested in mathematics and make available to them meaningful research opportunities, the necessary skills and knowledge to participate in successful collaborations, and a community of academic peers and mentors who can advise, encourage and support them through a successful graduate program.

The research topic of the 2016 MSRI-UP program is Sandpile Groups, a topic at the intersection of group theory, combinatorics, linear algebra and algebraic geometry. The research program will be led by Prof. Luis Garcia-Puente of Sam Houston State University.  The site director for the program is Prof. Suzanne Weekes of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  

Students who have had a linear algebra course and a course in which they have had to write proofs are eligible to apply.  Due to funding restrictions, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply, and the proram cannot accept foreign students regardless of funding. 

Please visit the MSRI-UP 2016 site http://www.msri.org/msri_ups/807 for more information.

Summer Program for Undergraduate Research at University of Oregon

I am writing to several University faculty and program directors in the Life Sciences to ask for your help in disseminating information about our summer research program to your talented undergraduate students who may be considering a career in life sciences or biomedical research.  Our Summer Program for Undergraduate Research in the Life Sciences (SPUR) enhances educational opportunities for undergraduates by offering direct, mentor guided research in laboratories at the cutting edges of life sciences in our Institute of Molecular Biology, Institute of Neuroscience, and Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, as well as our Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Exercise and Movement Science, Physics, Computer and Information Science, and Psychology.

I am hoping you can bring this information to interested students, either by forwarding this email message or by directing them to our webpage: http://spur.uoregon.edu/  SPUR interns work closely with active mentors in basic research.  In addition, they participate in weekly seminar series and career workshops, an Undergraduate Research Symposium, special professional development workshops, enrichment activities, and regular lab meetings.

We welcome prospective life scientists from ethnic or cultural backgrounds traditionally under-represented in the life sciences, as well as students from disadvantaged backgrounds.  Travel and living expenses for visiting students are covered by the program. SPUR scholars are housed together near the UO campus.

I greatly appreciate your help and consideration.

Sincerely,

Peter O’Day
