Internships, scholarships, and workshops, oh my!

Here are various opportunities culled from my e-mail from the past few days. These start with undergrad opportunities, and then go on to opportunities open to grad students, post-docs, and faculty.

Association for Women in Science Multicultural Internship Program: summer internships in Washington, DC for women undergraduate science majors from underrepresented groups (individuals of African American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander descent).

Summer of Applied Geophysical Experience, a Research Experience for Undergraduates program at Los Alamos National Lab, New Mexico. (A former student of mine was an intern at LANL for a year after graduation, and the experience helped him a great deal in grad school.)

Various Association for Women Geoscientists scholarships. Several chapters give their own scholarships, some for undergrads, some open to grad students. There is also the national Minority Scholarship, open to undergrads nationwide.

On the Cutting Edge workshop deadlines:

Preparing for an Academic Career in the Geosciences, for grad students and post-docs. Deadline is Friday, March 14.

Early Career Faculty, which means in the first four years of a full-time teaching position. Deadline is Friday, March 14.

Teaching Introductory Geology in the 21st Century still has ten slots open, although the deadline passed. The workshop program is starting to come together, and it's going to incorporate discussions of how to reach out to underrepresented groups and how to teach geology in an urban setting. (I'm going to this one.)

I'll be at the introductory classes workshop too. Yay! We'll get more than 30 seconds to chat. Now I'm looking forward to it even more.
