Government Internships Available for Summer 2018

Have you ever wondered how our government works? Do you want to make a difference in public policy? Then you may be interested in a government internship.

Internships provide an individual with a monitored or supervised work or service experience where the individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience. These learning goals can include: academic learning, career development, skill development and personal development. Federal or State internship programs are available to students across a wide variety of disciplines while gaining experience in government, politics and international relations.

Applications are being accepted now for Senate and House Washington DC Offices. Federal agencies such as NASA, NSF, DOJ, DOE and others are also accepting applications.

In addition, there are multiple academic/internship programs available in DC and internships through the State of Michigan.

If interested, learn more online. Summer internship deadlines are quickly approaching.

CORRECTION: USF FMMI REU Announcement and Call for Applicants

My apologies, the earlier USF FMMI REU brochure had an error in it in terms of the web address to the main website. If possible, please broadcast out the attached corrected brochure (which was also compressed to a smaller file size for easier email distribution) to any of your undergraduates who may be interested in a summer REU experience this year. Our Functional Materials & Manufacturing Institute has space for a significant number of undergraduates in our summer REU program to work in a wide variety of research fields related to functional materials and advanced materials manufacturing processes. The deadline for applications is next week on February 13th, 2018, so there is still time for interested undergraduates to apply. Details on applying are in the attached brochure.

2018 Dissertation Institute accepting applications!

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Dissertation Institute, an interactive workshop for underrepresented (African American, native American, Pacific Island and Hispanic American) graduate students in engineering, is March 15, 2018. The primary goal is to address issues that prolong completion times for those at the dissertation proposal preparation and dissertation completion stages of the targeted population. The Institute is funded by the National Science Foundation and hosted by Old Dominion University and Virginia Tech.

The Dissertation Institute will take place June 10th – 15th on the University of Houston and focus on skills and strategies needed to successfully complete the dissertation process and provide networking opportunities to build connections for future collaborative career advancement. Institute participants will build new writing habits, work on their dissertation or dissertation proposal, and learn skills that will help them continue making progress when they return to their institutions. Participants will be housed in a private room; will share bathroom with one other participant; receive meals; and be reimbursed for travel costs up to $500. As a part of the application process, participants will be asked to identify barriers that have impeded their progress to completing their dissertation and to provide suggestions for additional topics to be presented.

We seek your assistance in identifying students who might benefit from participating in the Institute. Feel free to share the following link with students, faculty and any other colleagues that might assist us in announcing this wonderful opportunity:  https://www.dissertationinstitute.com/

If you have questions, please email them to dissertationinstitute@gmail.com.

Instructors Needed for Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs

As Summer Youth Programs (SYP) gears up for another exciting season, we are constantly seeking ways to make explorations engaging, impactful and fun for all participants.

With the semester coming to a close, enrollment is strong—more than 360 participants have already enrolled, with several major program deadlines rapidly approaching. We have hired nearly 65 undergraduate and graduate student staff, built our executive team and begun preparations for our annual move to Wadsworth Hall.

At this time, one remaining hurdle is finding instructors and TA’s to deliver academic curriculum for several of our popular explorations. What does it take to be an SYP Instructor or TA? Enthusiasm is a must, and previous classroom experience is ideal. If you are interested in delivering structured, hands-on learning to excited and engaged students from across the country, we’d love to hear from you. Learn more at SYP Instructors.

Here is a list of courses for which we are still hiring instructors:

  • Digital Photography (June 18 – 22 and June 25 – 29)
    • Instructors Needed: 1 – TAs: 1
    • June 18 – 22 (grades 9-11 / capacity 20 students) and June 25 – 29 (grades 6-8 / capacity 15 students)
    • Digital photography combines the art, technology and the great outdoors. Students will capture images on explorations throughout the Keweenaw Peninsula, which offers beautiful shorelines, waterfalls and abandoned mine structures. They will also learn about exposure, composition and visualization and refine your images with software. Instructors should have photography and editing experience for this course.

The week culminates with the students launching rockets at the Gay Stamp Sands. The instructor should be comfortable working with middle and high school students, have experience in rocketry/space science, and have confidence explaining STEM topics to a wide variety of learners.
  • Aquatic Ecology Field Study at Gratiot Lake 
    • Instructors Needed: 1 – TAs: 1
    • June 25 – 29 (grades 9-11 / capacity 8 students)
