ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Workshop for Exploratory Majors:
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.

*	Receive a $2,900 research stipend.
*	Get assistance with the graduate application and financial aid processes.
