STEM & Social Science Majors: NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Info Sessions

Together with the Graduate School’s Office of Fellowships and Awards, we are offering 3 information sessions to help prepare students for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) application. This fellowship program is for undergraduates/bachelor’s level alums and first year graduate students who plan to pursue research-based Master’s and doctoral degree programs in Social Science, STEM fields or STEM Education & Learning Research. The GRFP especially encourages members of underrepresented minority groups, women, persons with disabilities and veterans to apply.

About the program:

· Selected students benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees.

· Fellows also have opportunities for international research and professional development.

· Last year, 2,000 students were offered an award, or approximately 1 out of every 6.5 applicants.

· Due to a recent eligibility change, the program now limits current graduate students to only one application to the GRFP, submitted either in their first year or in the second year of graduate school.

· We expect that the program solicitation and application will be released in late summer.

Ever have one of those days? Of course you have. You may even be having one now.

Never fear, I am here to brighten your day with the announcement of two brand new VLPA courses from the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. We are simply bubbling over with awesomeness.

First up – RUSS 223 “Russian Revolutions: Film”

From the early Soviet period through the Stalin years to the contemporary cinema in the time of Putin. Taught by our new faculty member Sasha Senderovich.

Secondly –

POLSH 320 “People, Places and Events: Images of Poland in Contemporary Polish Photography” (this course may not ever be taught again, since it is offered by our visiting Fulbright scholar) Also carries I&S credit.

Photography as anthropology, fictional narrative, documentation, memory and metaphor…

Assistant Professor Chelsea Wood, School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences

Wood Lab

Topic: Parasites in Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems

Parasites run the world: no ecosystem exists without them, and among all of Earth’s species, parasites outnumber non-parasites. But because they are usually small and hidden within their hosts, parasites can be easy to overlook.  My work addresses the ecology of marine and freshwater parasites.  I’ll summarize the ecological importance of parasites, their effects on hosts, and talk about why parasites are important components of marine and freshwater ecosystems.
