ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Workshop for Exploratory Majors (NEW POSTING):
The next workshop for exploratory majors is taking place on Tuesday, February 17 from 3:00-4:00pm in 200 Farrior Hall (Academic Advising Center). This workshop topic is: Major Jeopardy: Play the Major Game.

2.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Training and Recruitment Initiative for Admission to Leading Law Schools:
Harvard & NYU are excited to announce the launch of Trials, a residential scholarship program that helps talented and motivated undergraduates of modest means earn acceptance to the nation's leading law schools. Their aim is to promote diversity in the field of law by reinforcing the skills and focusing the goals of college students whose backgrounds are underrepresented in the legal profession.

For five weeks in July and early August, Trials students reside at Harvard or NYU to receive intensive LSAT instruction and a series of lectures by prominent lawyers and scholars to introduce them to the legal profession. Students have no expenses associated with the program and will receive a $3,000 stipend to supplement their summer income.
 
Applications for the inaugural 2009 session are due March 1. Students can apply online by visiting the website at http://trials.atfoundation.org
 
They are accepting applications from aspiring students of any background whose personal circumstances, self-identifications, and unique perspectives might place them outside the mainstream of typical law school applicants. Students with strong academic credentials, well-articulated ambitions, and documented financial need will compete for twenty (20) spots in the 2009 class. 

3.	RESEARCH: McNair Scholars Program:
The University of Florida McNair Scholars Program is currently accepting applications. The McNair Scholars Program exists to support undergraduate college students from low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented backgrounds in their progress toward a Ph.D. As a result of their participation in the McNair program, participants will have the opportunity to:

*	Conduct their own research with a faculty mentor.
*	Receive a $2,900 research stipend.
*	Get assistance with the graduate application and financial aid processes.
*	Present and publish their research.
*	Travel to national research and professional conferences.
                    
The deadline for the Applications has been extended to Monday, March 2. Applications are available at the following Web Site: http://gradschool.ufl.edu/mcnair .  For more information, please contact us at 352-846-2575 or e-mail us at [log in to unmask]

4.	STUDY ABROAD: Summer B in Utrecht:
Looking for a cool way to spend your summer B? How about the Utrecht Summer Program in the Netherlands? One of the most affordable UF programs on campus! Only 25 minutes by train from Amsterdam and an hour to the German border. There are still spots available. For more information contact Dr. Sharon DiFino, program advisor, [log in to unmask] or go online to open your application now.

5.	STUDY ABROAD: Summer Brussels Program through Clemson University:
There are a few spaces remaining in our Summer Brussels Program (May 10 - June 12).  Centered in the "Capital of Europe", this five-week program features two honors courses. In "European Integration," students learn about the development of the European Union and the role of the EU in various policy areas. In "Cultural Topics" students explore the rich history and artistic heritage of Belgium and the Low Countries. Both courses are taught in English by faculty at our partner institution, Institut Catholique des Hautes Etudes Commerciales.

In addition to the courses, there are several day trips and tours of historically significant cities, such as Bruges (the "Venice of the North"), Antwerp, and Ghent. We also take a tour of Chocolate Planet where students actually make their own confections! We also include a discussion with officials at the European Commission and a tour of a brewery. On weekends students are free for personal travel. In the past, popular destinations have been Paris, Amsterdam, London and Cologne.

We project the cost for the program at $4,300 (subject to change based on exchange rates). The cost covers: tuition, program fees, lodging, Metro pass for travel in Brussels, insurance, program-related field trips, and closing dinner. The cost does NOT include airfare and meals. Students should count on spending about $500 during the five weeks for their daily meals. 

The priority deadline to ensure a place in the program is February 16. Applications will be accepted until March 1 or until such time as the program is full, whichever is earlier. Applications are at http://www.clemson.edu/ia/abroad/apply.html . Along with the application, students must submit a deposit of $250 (make checks payable to Clemson University, and send to: Office of International Affairs, E301 Martin Hall, Clemson University, Clemson, SC 29634).
