Opportunity for Teaching Alumni


Hello!

On behalf of Chinquapin Prep, a private school for highly motivated, low income students, I would like to share a potential opportunity for your graduating teaching alumni. The Chinquapin Teaching Fellowship takes people dedicated to becoming outstanding teachers and provides targeted training to help them achieve that goal. This 2 year program focuses on developing a rich understanding of instructional best practices and strong classroom management, and provides support by a mentor throughout the program.

As a former Breakthrough teaching alum, I can say that Chinquapin is an ideal place to work in Urban Education. The Program places Fellows in charge of 2-3 courses in first year, and 3-4 courses in their second year. Additionally, Fellows lead extracurricular activities (sports, arts, clubs), mentor students, and help supervise the boarding program. This workload provides many opportunities for the Fellows to make a profound impact on these students' lives both inside and outside the classroom.

In addition to salary and health benefits, housing is provided in apartments inside students dorms, allowing the Fellows to build life-long relationships with students. Students board Monday through Friday, and meals are provided when students are present.

More information about the school and a summary of this information can be found in the attached flyer. To apply, send cover letter and resume to Jeremy Goodreau (jgoodreau@chinquapin.org).

2013 MIHF Research Internship.

2013 Summer Research Internships - Clinical Cardiology

Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation offers one of the most outstanding and unique internship opportunities available to undergraduate premed students and those studying in other health care disciplines. Working with a physician mentor and a research staff mentor, interns work directly on clinical research studies and publications that impact patient care. This past year, former interns contributed to 10 presentations at national scientific meetings and 9 publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Questions past interns have worked on:

· Compiled and analyzed data from 500+ patients to assess whether frequency and severity of heart attacks varies by time of day (circadian oscillations).

· Compared the safety of closure devices vs. manual compression based on 56 patients who had complications following femoral-access catheter procedures. Identified strategies that improve the success of closure devices and prevent surgical complications.

· Evaluated whether 140 heart attack patients who did not respond to angioplasty and were referred for emergency bypass surgery had increased bleeding risk based on the antiplatelet drugs in the pre-angioplasty protocols.

Interns spend approximately 11 days on shadowing, observations and other field trips. As a member of a cohort of 12-14 students, interns also learn from the wide variety of projects and experiences of their peers.

Feedback from a previous intern: "There is no better place where you can get a holistic view of healthcare while having the responsibility to work on your own research project. It is the perfect opportunity for interactive learning, critical thinking, and relationship building. There is nothing more awesome than getting to be a part of a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge research facility while learning the ins and outs of the healthcare team. The physicians have high expectations of the interns, but they never leave you with a project that you cannot handle. If you want to work hard and learn a lot, this program is for you."

Internships are full-time, 11-12 weeks in duration, and offer a modest stipend of $8 per hour and paid parking. All internships take place on the campus of Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Out-of-state participants in previous years were able to sublet apartments near the University of Minnesota and reported that short-term relocation was very worthwhile.


We regard diversity in the internship program as an important factor in providing a rich learning environment for participants. In particular, we encourage applications from candidates who fit the NIH definition for minorities underrepresented in biomedical research: black, Hispanic, and American Indian students; students with disabilities; and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

For more information, please visit mplsheart.org/internship. Completed applications must be submitted by January 31 for consideration.

AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
AEA GRADUATE EDUCATION DIVERSITY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (GEDI)
DEADLINE: Thursday, June 21, 2012

The American Evaluation Association welcomes applications for its Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program that provides paid internship and training opportunities for academic year 2012/2013. The GEDI program works to engage and support students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation. The goals of the GEDI program are to:

-Expand the pool of graduate students of color and from other under-represented groups who have extended their research capacities to evaluation.
-Stimulate evaluation thinking concerning under-represented communities and culturally responsive evaluation.
-Deepen the evaluation profession's capacity to work in racially, ethnically and culturally diverse settings.

Interns may come from a variety of disciplines, including public health, education, political science, anthropology, psychology, sociology, social work, and the natural sciences. Their commonality is a strong background in research skills, an interest in extending their capacities to the field of evaluation, and a commitment to thinking deeply about culturally responsive evaluation practice.

The Internship: Building on the training content described below, the Interns work the equivalent of approximately two days per week at an internship site near their home institution from approximately September 1 to July 1. The interns may work on a single evaluation project or multiple projects at the site, but all internship work is focused on building skills and confidence in real-world evaluation practices. Interns receive a stipend of $8,000 in recognition of their internship work based on completion of the internship and satisfactory finalization of program requirements, including any deliverables due to the host agency, progress reports, and reflections on the internship experience.

Training and Networking Components: It is assumed that students come to the program with basic qualitative and quantitative research skills. The GEDI program then works to extend those skills to evaluation through multiple activities:

Fall Seminar. A five-day intensive seminar, held August 19 to August 23 in Claremont, CA, provides an orientation that expands the student's knowledge and understanding of critical issues in evaluation, including thinking about building evaluation capacities to work across cultures and diverse groups. The interns complete a self-assessment in the Fall, clarifying their own goals during program participation.

AEA Annual Conference. Interns will spend the week of October 22 to October 27 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the American Evaluation Association annual conference. While there, they attend (a) pre-conference workshops selected to fill gaps in their knowledge and skills, (b) conference sessions exploring the breadth and depth of the field, and (c) multiple networking events to connect them with senior colleagues. The interns also conduct a small-service learning project in the form of an evaluation of one component of the conference.

Winter Seminar. A three-day seminar, held in January or February, provides the students with additional training, coaching on their evaluation projects, and panel discussions with evaluation practitioners working in a range of contexts.

Evaluation Project. Interns will have the opportunity to provide support to an agency's evaluation activities in close proximity to their graduate institution. Interns will provide three updates on their evaluation project activities as part of the internship program, describing and reflecting on the application of their evaluation knowledge to the actual project activities.

Monthly Webinars: The students gather each month for a two-hour webinar to check in on evaluation projects and site placements, add to existing skill-sets, and learn from invited guest speakers.

AEA/CDC Summer Evaluation Institute. The program ends with attendance at the Summer Evaluation Institute held in Atlanta each June. There, students once again connect and finalize project reporting, attend training workshops, and participate in a graduation ceremony.

Specific Support Mechanisms: Interns are supported by colleagues at school, at their site placements, and within the sponsoring association:

An Academic Advisor. The academic advisor at the Intern's home institution supports and coordinates coursework and other activities, while helping to integrate the internship program with the student's plan of study.

A Sponsoring Agency. Students generally are matched with sponsoring agencies near their graduate institution that provide the opportunity to perform evaluation activities compatible with students' research interests and skills. Last year among approximately 75 applicants, six GEDI were competitively selected based on available sponsorships in the following cities: Atlanta (1), New Jersey (1), Baltimore (1), Pittsburgh (1), and Chapel Hill (2). GEDI then matched two remaining top applicants with cooperating agencies near their graduate institutions. Similar placements are expected this year. We are currently finalizing sponsor recruitment for 2012-2013; sponsors pay the Intern's $8,000 stipend, plus travel and training costs to the four meetings.

Supervising Mentor. A colleague at the host site with evaluation experience acts as a guide and mentor throughout the program.

GEDI Program Co-chairs. The GEDI program Chair, Stewart Donaldson, is an experienced evaluator. Working with a a cadre of colleagues, he oversee the curriculum and site placements. Throughout the internship the Chair is available to guide, advise, and support the interns in achieving their professional goals and the goals of the program.

AEA Staff Support. AEA staff provide logistical support throughout the internship. Post-internship, they work to connect program graduates with opportunities for leadership, participation, and networking within the association.

Online Community. The GEDI cohort uses an online community space for checking in, turning in updates, asking questions, and informal networking.
Student Benefits: Interns receive support from advisors and mentors, quality training focused on evaluation, real-world work experience, registration waivers and guidance at two professional evaluation conferences, and multiple opportunities for professional networking. In recognition of the time involved in the program (approximately 2 days per week), each intern also receives an $8,000 stipend and is reimbursed for major travel expenses related to the program (airfare and hotel specifically).

Eligibility: We seek students who are not already enrolled in an evaluation program/specialization or pursuing an evaluation degree who:

-Are enrolled in a masters or doctoral-level program in the United States and have completed the equivalent of one full year of graduate level coursework;
-Are residing in the United States;
-Have already been exposed to research methods and substantive issues in their field of expertise;
-Demonstrate via written essays the relevance of evaluation training to their career plans and their commitment to culturally responsive practice;
-Are eligible to work for pay in the United States outside of an academic environment (non-U.S. citizens will be asked to provide documentation of current eligibility); and
-Have support from his/her academic advisor.

Criteria for Selection: The interns will be selected based on their completed applications, materials provided, and subsequent finalist interviews focusing on:

-Their thinking around and commitment to culturally responsive evaluation practice;
-The alignment between their skills, aspirations, locale, and internship site placement needs;
-The quality of their academic, extracurricular, and personal experiences as preparation for GEDI; and
-Their capacity to carry out and complete the program, including support from an academic advisor.

To apply: Download the GEDI Application (aea12.gedi.applicationF.doc) and return all requested materials via email as described on that document on or before Thursday, June 21, 2012. Please note that it may take a few weeks to compile the requested information and thus we recommend that you begin as soon as possible before the deadline.

Application Deadline: May 16, 2012

The Harvard Business School (HBS) Summer Venture in Management Program (SVMP) is a one week management training program for rising college seniors designed to increase diversity and opportunity in business education. This thirty-year HBS tradition demonstrates the many rewards of an MBA degree to students who may not otherwise have considered this path. Participants spend a week on campus living the MBA student experience - attending classes, analyzing case studies, and debating management issues with peers and faculty.

This unique educational experience, in combination with a summer internship at a sponsoring company or organization, gives participants a broader understanding of the challenges business leaders face, the innumerable opportunities that exist in management, and the impact they can have on their community and the world through leadership.

Participants will be selected based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and personal characteristics. Consistent with the objective of promoting educational diversity and opportunity in business leadership, additional criteria to be considered among others, are whether the applicant is:
· The first family member to attend college;
· A member of a group that is currently underrepresented in business schools and corporate America (e.g. African-American, Latino, Native American, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender);
· From a family with little business education or experience; and/or
· From a school whose graduates do not typically attend a top-tier university (e.g., attends a rural or predominantly minority college, or has attended a community college as part of a four-year degree).

The SVMP Application will be available online in February 2012. The deadline is May 16, 2012. To apply and for more information about this program, please visit the SVMP website

Welcome to the NSF Engineering Research Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. The program allows undergraduates to gain hands-on experience in conducting original research and apply it to cutting edge applications in fluid power and related disciplines.

The program and center are funded by the National Science Foundation. Students come from all around the country to work at the seven universities that are part of the center. Students have a diverse range of majors, experiences and interests. We hope that you will consider joining us this summer.

Students work in a university research lab on a project related to fluid power along with a faculty advisor with expertise in the field. Projects may involve background reading of technical literature and reports, computer-aided design, mathematical modeling, fabrication designs, experimental testing and group discussions and project team meetings. Every student has a project of their own with specific responsibilities and deliverables. At the end of the summer, every student creates a scientific poster and a project report. In addition, there is a program of professional development and social activities with other REU students.

REU positions are available at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Milwaukee School of Engineering in Milwaukee, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.

Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program (MSROP) Summer 2010


Dear University of Minnesota Undergraduate Students,

The Office for Diversity in Graduate Education would like to invite you to consider participating in the Multicultural Summer Research Opportunity Program that will be held on the Twin Cities Campus from June 7 - August 13, 2010.

Established in 1986, the Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program (MSROP) at the University of Minnesota provides undergraduates an opportunity to develop research and inquiry skills with a faculty mentor on an individual basis or as part of a research team, which may include graduate students, research scientists, technicians and other MSROP students. Through the mentoring process, students are introduced to the methodology of their chosen discipline by involving them in research and other scholarly activities. Such involvement is expected to improve the quality of the students' undergraduate experience, to enhance the likelihood of their completing bachelor's degrees, and to attract larger numbers of prepared students of color to graduate or
professional schools.

If you are interested, please refer to the MSROP website
(http://www.grad.umn.edu/outreach/research/MSROP/) for:
