Summer ORISE Fellowship Opportunity at CDC

Application Deadline: January 17, 2014

Qualifications: Current undergraduate and graduate students majoring in chemistry or biology that have completed three years of coursework in chemistry or biology may apply. Must be able to comply with safety and security requirements before or upon reporting to CDC

Stipend: Approximately $2,700 per month for full-time undergraduate student fellows and $3,300 for full-time graduate student fellows.

I’m writing to let you know we are running our Pfizer Academic-Industrial Relations Diversity fellowship program again, for the 2013 – 2014 academic year.  The program is essentially the same as last year.  As a reminder, we are looking for enthusiastic undergraduates from historically under-represented ethnic groups to participate in this research fellowship program.  We are asking for your help in identifying these individuals from your own research group and undergraduate organic classes.  The same requirements and qualifications apply.  This is a $15K fellowship divided into $7500/semester.  Each semester $6000 is for the student stipend and $1500 may be used for lab and travel costs.  The student is required to write a report of his/her progress in January 2014 in order to receive the spring stipend.  Also, the student will be invited to present his/her research at the La Jolla site at the end of the 2014 summer.  Deadline is October 21, 2013.

The research areas of that we will consider funding include organic synthesis, analytical chemistry, computational chemistry, crystallography and structural/chemical biology.

Attached is a cover letter describing the program in more detail along with a copy of the application and a flyer to post around the department. Please also feel free to circulate these materials to other interested colleagues/students. I can also provide former example applications if students need an idea of what we are looking for in a successful application.

We look forward to hearing from you and some excellent Oregon State University chemistry undergraduate students.  Thanks for your help in making this program a success.

The National Academies is pleased to announce a call for nominations and applications for the 2014 Jefferson Science Fellows program.  Initiated by the Secretary of State in 2003, this fellowship program engages the American academic science, technology, engineering and medical communities in the design and implementation of U.S. foreign policy.

Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) spend one year at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for an on-site assignment in Washington, D.C. that may also involve extended stays at U.S. foreign embassies and/or missions.

The fellowship is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, academic scientists, engineers and physicians from U.S. institutions of higher learning. Nominees/applicants must hold U.S. citizenship and will be required to obtain a security clearance.

The deadline for 2014-2015 program year applications/nominations is January 13, 2014. To learn more about the Jefferson Science Fellowship and to apply, visit the JSF website at:
