HONORS ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Phi Beta Kappa:
Tapped to join Phi Beta Kappa (Liberal Arts majors) this semester? Don't
just toss the invitation into the trash, thinking this is one more
solicitation for your hard-earned cash. Getting selected for this
honorary is a great accomplishment and recognized by grad schools, law
and med schools as meaning you are among the very best students at your
school. It is especially an honor to be selected as a junior. Phi Beta
Kappa is the oldest undergraduate honors organization in the United
States, and only about 10 percent of the nation's colleges and
universities have been awarded a chapter. Membership in Phi Beta Kappa
will be noted on your transcript and will make a very nice line on your
resume. This honorary also has some scholarship money for grad school,
etc., so if you are a member take a look at their national website to
see what is available. Phi Beta Kappa: www.pbk.org . UF chapter:
www.honors.ufl.edu/pbk

2.	SCHOLARSHIP / FELLOWSHIP: Department of Homeland Security
Scholarship and Fellowship Program:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces program
guidelines for the 2008 competition cycle of the DHS Scholarship and
Fellowship Program.  

Complete information is available online at http://www.orau.gov/dhsed/ .
All applicants are expected to apply using the online application. The
deadline for submitting an application is January 7 at 11:59pm Eastern
Standard Time. The website has the list of criteria and who is eligible
to apply. Questions regarding the DHS Scholarship and Fellowship Program
can be sent via e-mail to [log in to unmask]

3.	SCHOLARSHIP / FELLOWSHIP: Whitaker Fellows in Biomedical
Engineering:
The Whitaker International Program is a competitive grant that is
targeted at sending emerging leaders in the field of biomedical
engineering overseas to increase international collaboration in the
field. The grant is awarded based on an activity/project proposal that
is relevant to biomedical engineering. Grantees have gone overseas to
work on a wide range of activities, from pursuing Bioscience Enterprise
coursework to modeling blood flow through the heart to developing
prosthetics for amputees.

Whitaker Fellows are biomedical engineers (or bioengineers, which is
considered synonymous) ranging from graduating seniors to those
conducting doctoral studies. Fellows should have a BS or MS degree in
biomedical engineering. Because some institutions do not offer
biomedical engineering or its equivalent as a degree program, exceptions
may be made based on a demonstrated commitment to the field of BME
through significant coursework, research, laboratory or work experience.


Grantees will come from diverse geographic areas of the United States,
and they will conduct their Whitaker Fellow or Scholar activity in
diverse regions of the world. Candidates may apply to study or do
research in any country outside of the U.S., except Canada, because it
is contiguous with the United States, and the international experience
is minimized. 

A Fellow's grant length is expected to be approximately one academic
year (as defined by the academic calendar of the host country, but
typically 9-12 months). The award includes: round trip international
airfare, a monthly living stipend, health & accident insurance, and
tuition allowance up to a maximum $15,000 (if applicable).

The deadline to apply is February 11. For more information, visit
http://www.whitaker.org/home.php
