First Biology Students for Equity Meeting!

Biology

Biology Students for Equity is a new RSO on campus and our primary goal is to create an open and inclusive community in which we can further conversations about equity and diversity in STEM. Throughout the year we plan on continuing our mentorship program, hosting panels, networking events, laboratory technique courses, information sessions, socials, and even a podcast club.

If you are interested in being a part of our community and learning more about what we do, come check us out at our first meeting on Monday, October 8th @ 6:00pm in the Life Sciences Building Room 201. There will be FREE PIZZA!

We are officially launching our BSE Mentorship Program for the year, meaning applications for mentees and mentors are now OPEN. The goal of our Mentorship Program is to connect first and second year students to mentors and resources to help them succeed in the biology introductory series.

Our mentors will have had completed the biology introductory series. This our only requirement. Their majors will most likely fall into the realm of biology or related majors (biochemistry, public health, etc.), though that is by no means a requirement. What is expected of you in this role is to act as an academic/social advisor to your mentee. This DOES NOT entail tutoring. Ideally, you would give your mentee advice on how to generally succeed in the class/series and also general college advice to help them navigate through their first years here at UW. The time commitment is estimated to be at least five hours a quarter, though you and your mentee can meet as many times as you like.

Mentors apply heregoo.gl/i76hWa

As a mentee, you will be paired with a student who has completed the introductory biology series (likely a junior or senior) and receive advice to help you succeed in the intro series and support you as you as you navigate your way through the first years of your college career. Your mentor will also offer you advice about topics outside of class (majors, pre-requisite classes, research, how to get involved in extracurriculars, etc.). You do not need to be currently enrolled in the introductory biology series in order to become a mentee. Your mentor WILL NOT act as a tutor for you, though we will gladly connect you to resources where you can receive tutoring services!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, concerns, or ideas. We look forward to seeing you at our first meeting!

Foreign Service Fellowships: Apply By Sept. 17th!

Apply for the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program Graduate Fellowship and the Thomas R. Pickering Graduate Fellowship for fully funded graduate studies starting fall 2019!

Each program plans to award 30 fellowships of up to $37,500 annually for a two-year period for tuition, room, board, books, and mandatory fees for completion of two-year master’s degrees.  This includes up to $21,500 per year for tuition and mandatory fees and an academic year stipend of $16,000.

These fellowship programs seek to attract and prepare outstanding youth people, who represent ethnic, gender, social, and geographic diversity, for careers in the Foreign Service of the US Department of State in which they can help formulate, represent and implement U.S. foreign policy.

Both programs select fellows annually in highly competitive nationwide processes and supports them through two years of graduate study, internships, mentoring, and professional development activities. These programs both encourage the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. Fellows who successfully complete either of these programs and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers, in accordance with applicable law and State Department policy.
