FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY


Date:   January 12, 2011

To:     All UF Graduate Students

Cc:     All UF Graduate Coordinators and Staff

From:   UF SPICE Graduate Fellowship Program

RE:     February 15: Deadline for 2011-2012 SPICE Graduate Fellowship Applications


Applications for SPICE Graduate Fellowships for 2011-2012 are now being accepted. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, February 15, 2011.

SPICE (Science Partners in Inquiry-based Collaborative Education) is an NSF-sponsored GK-12 program in its eighth year at the University of Florida. (Although National Science Foundation funding expires in 2011, the program will continue -- thanks to the generous support of many UF and Alachua County Public School administrators.)  

Through SPICE, graduate students in the sciences and engineering are trained in inquiry-based teaching methods, paired with Alachua County Public School teachers, and teach in middle school classrooms.

A primary goal of SPICE is to enhance communication skills and outreach abilities of graduate students. Any graduate student interested in outreach or teaching at any level will benefit. Another goal of SPICE is to spark interest in science, engineering and math among Gainesville's disadvantaged youth.

The theme of SPICE is Ecosystem Health, but applicants do not need to be conducting research on ecosystem health -- only a willingness to include the theme in some lessons. Complete training is provided.

A two-year commitment is required of SPICE Fellows. During the first year, Fellows will teach in middle schools 1-2 days/week, and will receive a stipend of $24,000 plus tuition, fees and health insurance. During the second year, they will teach approximately 2 days/month and receive a stipend of $3,500.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents and currently enrolled in a UF graduate program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences or College of Veterinary Medicine. Graduate students in groups currently underrepresented in science and engineering are especially encouraged to apply.

Application materials are available online at http://www.spice.centers.ufl.edu/ApplicationInstructions.html.
 
General information about SPICE is available online at http://www.spice.centers.ufl.edu.
