1. Research Alliance in Math and Science (RAMS) program

Dear students and faculty:
The website is open for applications for summer 2013 internships through the Research Alliance in Math and Science (RAMS) program (! The research internship targets under-represented U.S. citizens, undergraduate levels majoring in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and related disciplines. If you were a RAMS intern as an undergraduate, you may be eligible as a graduate student. Please evaluate your eligibility before applying.

Please note that all fields are required for submission and for cyber security, there is no opportunity to save partially completed applications. Current student resumes should be uploaded as a Word (.doc) file with LAST NAME as the first word in the filename. Resume files that are not named with your LAST NAME first cannot be accepted and will result in an incomplete application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

I look forward to receiving your application packages! Please note that the deadline is the deadline for your entire package. Your official transcript should show the courses you will have completed plus the courses you are taking now. It is understood that courses you are currently taking will not have a grade. Your faculty should comment on the expected grade for relevant classes underway in the faculty recommendations.

Please note: your academic standing is the last year of school you have completed. For most of you, that will be the academic year you completed in May 2012.

Best to you for safe and happy holidays and much joy in 2013!

4. NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) Program

NASA announces a call for graduate fellowship proposals to the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) program for the 2013-2014
academic year. This call for fellowship proposals solicits applications from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of individuals pursuing
Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of NESSF is to
ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA¹s scientific goals. Awards resulting
from the competitive selection will be made in the form of training grants to the respective universities.

The deadline for NEW applications is February 1, 2013, and the deadline for RENEWAL applications is March 15, 2013.

The NESSF call for proposals and submission instructions are located at the NESSF 13 solicitation index page at
