    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    DAAD Scholarship: Summer Journalism Seminar/Internship Program
    Are you interested in journalism? The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to announce the second year of an intensive scholarship-supported summer seminar/internship program in Berlin for American journalism and communications students. We would be delighted and very grateful if you could help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your students, faculty and fellow staff. The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please
    visit: http://www.daad.org/page/internxchange/.

    SUMMER IN SOUTH ASIA: Undergraduate Fellowship Program at UM Preliminary Application Deadline
    The
    Center for South Asian Studies offers a special opportunity to chart your own course in India…
    Thanks to a special grant available to the Center for South Asian Studies, undergraduate students at UM have an opportunity to design and carry out their own fellowship programs in India during the summer. This fellowship is intended for non-graduating students who have not already spent significant amounts of time in India. The program is designed to be flexible: you tell us what you want to study, design a program to accomplish your goals, and we will fund the best proposals to cover most of your costs. The Center for South Asian Studies will assist you in connecting with organizations based in India as well as contacting and working with faculty members affiliated with CSAS when devising your proposal.
    Examples of Possible Programs: Internships in business, social work, government, or education; Work with a NGO on women's issues, diversity, deforestation, cultural or religious projects, AIDS, urbanization, or similar issues. For example, students interested in medicine might do an internship at a hospital or intern in a public health program; Do preliminary work for an honor's thesis; Seek out an apprenticeship that complements your academic work. For instance, an art or art history student might apprentice with a master Indian artist or artisan.
    We strongly encourage students to work with existing institutions, agencies, or organizations, but working as an individual may also be acceptable. If you don’t
    already have a partner organization in mind our staff can help you research organizations in India that might be good matches for your interests. Students should work with CSAS faculty associates while developing  their proposals. You will reach your project goals more effectively by learning from their expertise and ideas. Proposals will be accepted from individuals or from groups of two (2) students. The Center for South Asian Studies will select approximately six applicants and provide each with funding up to $3000 to cover travel and costs in India.
    The application process has four stages: A Preliminary Application is due in early January; Students are notified of first round decisions by mid-January; Successful first round applicants will meet with CSAS staff to refine their ideas in early February; Final application is due in mid-February.

    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    DAAD Scholarship: Summer Journalism Seminar/Internship Program
    Are you interested in journalism? The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to announce the second year of an intensive scholarship-supported summer seminar/internship program in Berlin for American journalism and communications students. We would be delighted and very grateful if you could help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your students, faculty and fellow staff. The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please
    visit: http://www.daad.org/page/internxchange/.

This fellowship is intended for non-graduating students who have not already spent significant amounts of time in India. The program is designed to be flexible: you tell us what you want to study, design a program to accomplish your goals, and we will fund the best proposals to cover most of your costs.

    Examples of Possible Programs: Internships in business, social work, government, or education; Work with a NGO on women's issues, diversity, deforestation, cultural or religious projects, AIDS, urbanization, or similar issues.

For instance, an art or art history student might apprentice with a master Indian artist or artisan.
    We strongly encourage students to work with existing institutions, agencies, or organizations, but working as an individual may also be acceptable. If you don’t
    already have a partner organization in mind our staff can help you research organizations in India that might be good matches for your interests. Students should work with CSAS faculty associates while developing  their proposals. You will reach your project goals more effectively by learning from their expertise and ideas. Proposals will be accepted from individuals or from groups of two (2) students. The Center for South Asian Studies will select approximately six applicants and provide each with funding up to $3000 to cover travel and costs in India.
    The application process has four stages: A Preliminary Application is due in early January; Students are notified of first round decisions by mid-January; Successful first round applicants will meet with CSAS staff to refine their ideas in early February; Final application is due in mid-February.

    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    DAAD Scholarship: Summer Journalism Seminar/Internship Program
    Are you interested in journalism? The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to announce the second year of an intensive scholarship-supported summer seminar/internship program in Berlin for American journalism and communications students. We would be delighted and very grateful if you could help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your students, faculty and fellow staff. The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please
    visit: http://www.daad.org/page/internxchange/.

    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>

    insurance fees and living expenses.

Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please

    Are you looking for a paid internship? Want to stay in Ann Arbor this summer? Want to earn college credit?
    The Development Summer Internship Program introduces college students to the concept of fundraising and the development profession as a career. Interns gain an understanding of the benefit of fundraising in today's society, particularly its importance within higher education, through paid work on meaningful projects in fundraising offices throughout the University of Michigan and through course work for credit. Interns will learn what difference philanthropy has made at the U-M, how it has affected their experience as students, and what role it plays in the world.
    Interns are paid $10 an hour to work four days a week in University development offices, at units ranging from Law to Medical Development. They also participate in classes once a week for credit and participate in variety of professional development opportunities. Get the background and skills you need to start a promising and fulfilling career --- development officers are in high demand! Program runs 5/12/2009 through 8/7/2009. Applications accepted on a rolling basis until Friday, January 16th. Learn more and apply now on-line: www.giving.umich.edu/institute

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    DAAD Scholarship: Summer Journalism Seminar/Internship Program
    Are you interested in journalism? The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to announce the second year of an intensive scholarship-supported summer seminar/internship program in Berlin for American journalism and communications students. We would be delighted and very grateful if you could help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your students, faculty and fellow staff. The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please
    visit: http://www.daad.org/page/internxchange/.

    SWEETLAND WRITING CENTER PEER TUTOR APPLICATION DEADLINE
    Since 1986, the Sweetland Writing Center has trained and supervised a select group of upper-level undergraduates to serve as writing tutors for their peers. Because students often feel more comfortable talking about their writing with peers, many prefer visiting tutors rather than faculty.  Peer tutors come from all disciplines and are trained to help fellow undergraduates with all parts of the writing process.
    Program Requirements: The Peer Tutor Program requires that accepted students enroll in a sequence of two courses. SWC 300: Seminar in Peer Tutoring, is a full-semester training course designed to acclimate new tutors to the  challenges of face-to-face tutoring. Through written exercises and observations of peer tutoring sessions, SWC 300 students gain valuable communication skills and knowledge of writing in several disciplines of study. Once a tutor successfully completes SWC 300, he or she enrolls in SWC 301: Directed Peer Tutoring. In this course, students tutor up to four hours per week and meet as a group with a Sweetland faculty member for an hour per week. During this hour, tutors and instructor exchange tutoring experiences and discuss the application of concepts learned in SWC 300. Enrollment in the Peer Tutor Program is by invitation and application only. Outstanding tutors who have completed SWC 300 and SWC 301 may be selected to tutor for pay during future terms.
    Selection Process: Candidates for the Peer Tutor Program must be nominated or recommended by a faculty member or graduate student instructor. To earn a nomination, students must demonstrate a strong command of the English language through their writing and verbal communication skills. In addition to a nomination, candidates must also complete an application, including an academic writing sample from a University of Michigan course.
    You can download an electronic version of the Winter 2009 application form here. Beginning October 1, 2008, paper copies of the application form will be available in the Sweetland Writing Center in 1139 Angell Hall and all Peer Tutoring locations.
    Applications for the Winter 2009 term are due by 5pm on Friday, November 14, 2008.
    For More Information: Read Frequently Asked Questions about Sweetland's Peer Tutoring Program or email the Peer Tutor Program Coordinator, Carrie Luke, at clluke@umich.edu.

    UROP at Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen
    Saturday, January 31 Application Deadline. UROP, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduate students from US and Canadian universities and professional researchers at RWTH Aachen University. RWTH Aachen University is one of the top academic institutions of science and engineering in Germany and worldwide.
    Students will conduct their own independent research project in the university's research facilities and labs for a period of eight to ten weeks. They will thus become an integral part of the research team while being mentored by academic staff.
    The programs duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship at one of the faculties of RWTH Aachen University. Leisure activities will be offered to ensure the students' integration and exposure to German culture and the international community on campus.
    Prior knowledge of German is not required for program admission. However, the language class is an integral part of the program, and every student is obliged
    to take part in the German course. Students are only admitted to their research projects after successful participation in the intensive course during the
    first two weeks (20 hours/week).
    Students will continue to learn German while carrying out their projects, though with a reduced number of hours (6 hours/week). Students with prior
    German knowledge will be placed in classes according to their language skills.
    All communication will be in English---and it is therefore not possible to earn credits for German 351 through this project.
    Projects are offered in all different kinds of research fields. The current list of projects that are open for application can be found on the program's
    website at: <www.rwth-aachen.de/urop>
    A UROP project is an independent research project and usually constitutes one part within a larger research project. Students will therefore become part of
    an established research team. The workload comprises eight weeks of full-time project work.
    Students do not have to pay any fees besides a service fee of 50 Euros. Students will have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well as
    insurance fees and living expenses. There are 30 scholarships available which will be awarded to students with an outstanding academic record (subject to a GPA of 3.2 or higher and a letter of recommendation). Scholarships are primarily reserved for students from partner universities (Michigan is a partner university of Aachen). The scholarships will amount to 1.850 Euros covering the basic living expenses during their stay abroad. Students will be notified whether they have been considered for a scholarship by the end of February 2009.
    Program dates for 2009: May 25 - July 31. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
    Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate for both their research project and the language class. The entire program is coordinated by the International Office of RWTH Aachen University, which will assist the students in all administrative matters.

    SATURDAY, JAN 31
    DAAD Scholarship: Summer Journalism Seminar/Internship Program
    Are you interested in journalism?

We would be delighted and very grateful if you could help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your students, faculty and fellow staff. The program is targeted primarily at currently enrolled undergraduate students, but a limited number of graduating Seniors, recent graduates and Master's students may be accepted as well.
    For the first six weeks of the program, participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. The final five weeks consist of an intensive internship with a German newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin. A complete program schedule will be available soon on the program website.
    Applicants must have at least "advanced intermediate" German skills to take part in the program, as the seminars and internships take place in the German language. The 20 applicants who are finally selected for the program will be awarded a monthly stipend of 650 Euros for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide participants a partial travel subsidy of 650-975 Euros (depending on US city of origin) towards the cost of international transportation to Germany; travel costs not covered by the partial subsidy must be paid by the individual program participants themselves. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. There will be a program fee of 140 Euros.
    The application deadline is January 31, 2009. The 40 applicants who are invited to a selection interview in New York City (in early March) will
    receive up to $300 toward the cost of their flight to the interview location. To find out about eligibility and the application requirements, please

Some of our students work in Washington, DC, and others have the opportunity to work at an embassy overseas.

    SWEETLAND WRITING CENTER PEER TUTOR APPLICATION DEADLINE
    Since 1986, the Sweetland Writing Center has trained and supervised a select group of upper-level undergraduates to serve as writing tutors for their peers. Because students often feel more comfortable talking about their writing with peers, many prefer visiting tutors rather than faculty.  Peer tutors come from all disciplines and are trained to help fellow undergraduates with all parts of the writing process.
    Program Requirements: The Peer Tutor Program requires that accepted students enroll in a sequence of two courses. SWC 300: Seminar in Peer Tutoring, is a full-semester training course designed to acclimate new tutors to the  challenges of face-to-face tutoring. Through written exercises and observations of peer tutoring sessions, SWC 300 students gain valuable communication skills and knowledge of writing in several disciplines of study. Once a tutor successfully completes SWC 300, he or she enrolls in SWC 301: Directed Peer Tutoring. In this course, students tutor up to four hours per week and meet as a group with a Sweetland faculty member for an hour per week. During this hour, tutors and instructor exchange tutoring experiences and discuss the application of concepts learned in SWC 300. Enrollment in the Peer Tutor Program is by invitation and application only. Outstanding tutors who have completed SWC 300 and SWC 301 may be selected to tutor for pay during future terms.
    Selection Process: Candidates for the Peer Tutor Program must be nominated or recommended by a faculty member or graduate student instructor. To earn a nomination, students must demonstrate a strong command of the English language through their writing and verbal communication skills. In addition to a nomination, candidates must also complete an application, including an academic writing sample from a University of Michigan course.
    You can download an electronic version of the Winter 2009 application form here. Beginning October 1, 2008, paper copies of the application form will be available in the Sweetland Writing Center in 1139 Angell Hall and all Peer Tutoring locations.
    Applications for the Winter 2009 term are due by 5pm on Friday, November 14, 2008.
    For More Information: Read Frequently Asked Questions about Sweetland's Peer Tutoring Program or email the Peer Tutor Program Coordinator, Carrie Luke, at clluke@umich.edu.

    For the 5th consecutive year, the Transatlantic Program (TAP) is offering a group of up to 25 select U.S. students the opportunity to gain work experience in Germany, following a ten-day full immersion seminar in Berlin, Germany. The internships will take place in summer 2009 and last 2-6 months (though I do not know whether we have six months of summer in Germany). The TAP enables students in the fields of engineering, business, international relations, and renewable energies to gain practical skills for their future careers, to improve their foreign language abilities and to learn first-hand about the German business environment and culture. This experience is designed to promote personal growth, to help the participants become ambassadors for transatlantic business, as well as interculturally sensitive, flexible young professionals.
    Unique to the Transatlantic Program is the pre-internship immersion Seminar in Berlin, a ten-day program consisting of German language-building activities, intercultural training, and discussions with representatives from German business and politics.  Highlights of the seminar include visits to companies and organization and day trips to other key cities such as: Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, Berlin; Daimler AG, Berlin; Federal Foreign Office, Berlin; Porsche AG, Leipzig; Nordex AG Wind Power Plant, Rostock; Container Harbor, Hamburg; Dresden; Potsdam. The group is brought together again for an interim seminar in Cologne to share experiences and for an internship review. This summer, one first-year student from German 231 participated at this program; and from what I have heard, her experience was uniformly positive. If you would like to be nominated for this program, please let either Janet Van Valkenburg <jvv@umich.edu> or Kalli Federhofer (kallimz@umich.edu) know by September 30 as our nomination deadline is October 1.

    Unique to the Transatlantic Program is the pre-internship immersion Seminar in Berlin, a ten-day program consisting of German language-building activities, intercultural training, and discussions with representatives from German business and politics.  Highlights of the seminar include visits to companies and organization and day trips to other key cities such as: Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, Berlin; Daimler AG, Berlin; Federal Foreign Office, Berlin; Porsche AG, Leipzig; Nordex AG Wind Power Plant, Rostock; Container Harbor, Hamburg; Dresden; Potsdam. The group is brought together again for an interim seminar in Cologne to share experiences and for an internship review. This summer, one first-year student from German 231 participated at this program; and from what I have heard, her experience was uniformly positive. If you would like to be nominated for this program, please let either Janet Van Valkenburg <jvv@umich.edu> or Kalli Federhofer (kallimz@umich.edu) know by September 30 as our nomination deadline is October 1. Your application deadline is October 24, 2008!   If you would like more information on the program, please visit <www.transatlanticprogram.org> or e-mail Sabine Klensch at <klensch@gaccom.org>. If you participate in this program, you are eligible to enroll in German 351 (Fall 2009), a three-credit credit-giving course for an internship in a German-speaking country.

    ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK
    Participant Application Deadline
    The University of Michigan's Alternative Spring Break is a SERVE-sponsored program that offers a community service learning experience during the traditional Spring Break of the academic calendar. Students spend the year learning about the culture and history of a particular area, community, or issue. During spring break, groups travel to a selected site to engage in meaningful action towards a greater understanding of root causes of relevant issues. Students participate in critical reflection and analysis of social justice issues they experience first-hand.
    The program is dedicated to providing break opportunities to as many students as possible, while striving to increase community impact and student learning and aiming to help address societal problems with understanding and compassion. Critical elements of this process are recognizing community needs and assets while working in partnership with community members. Equally important is translating the experience into an understanding of the complexity and interconnectedness of social problems and making a commitment to being part of the long-term solution.
    Past and present ASB sites have included delivering meals to AIDS patients in New York City, repairing homes damaged in natural disasters, engaging with urban youth in Chicago, working with the Sioux nation in South Dakota, learning about sustainable agriculture in Texas, and a community non-violence program in Detroit. Don't just go somewhere...do something! http://ginsberg.umich.edu/serve/asb/index.html and click on "Be a Participant." Questions? E-mail holdthemayo@umich.edu

    Transatlantic Program Application Deadline
    For the 5th consecutive year, the Transatlantic Program (TAP) is offering a group of up to 25 select U.S. students the opportunity to gain work experience in Germany, following a ten-day full immersion seminar in Berlin, Germany. The internships will take place in summer 2009 and last 2-6 months (though I do not know whether we have six months of summer in Germany). The TAP enables students in the fields of engineering, business, international relations, and renewable energies to gain practical skills for their future careers, to improve their foreign language abilities and to learn first-hand about the German business environment and culture. This experience is designed to promote personal growth, to help the participants become ambassadors for transatlantic business, as well as interculturally sensitive, flexible young professionals.
    Unique to the Transatlantic Program is the pre-internship immersion Seminar in Berlin, a ten-day program consisting of German language-building activities, intercultural training, and discussions with representatives from German business and politics.  Highlights of the seminar include visits to companies and organization and day trips to other key cities such as: Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, Berlin; Daimler AG, Berlin; Federal Foreign Office, Berlin; Porsche AG, Leipzig; Nordex AG Wind Power Plant, Rostock; Container Harbor, Hamburg; Dresden; Potsdam. The group is brought together again for an interim seminar in Cologne to share experiences and for an internship review. This summer, one first-year student from German 231 participated at this program; and from what I have heard, her experience was uniformly positive. If you would like to be nominated for this program, please let either Janet Van Valkenburg <jvv@umich.edu> or Kalli Federhofer (kallimz@umich.edu) know by September 30 as our nomination deadline is October 1. Your application deadline is October 24, 2008!   If you would like more information on the program, please visit <www.transatlanticprogram.org> or e-mail Sabine Klensch at <klensch@gaccom.org>.

    Teach For America Info Session,
    5pm Michigan Union Anderson Room
    For those who are unfamiliar with Teach For America, please read below! The info session is open to everyone and we look forward to answering your questions! Hope to see you there!
    Our Mission & Approach:
    *At Teach For America, we are working with a great sense of urgency to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising future leaders in the effort.
    *We recruit outstanding recent college graduates of all majors and career interests and working professionals to commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools, and we invest in the training and professionals development necessary to ensure their success as teachers in our highest-poverty communities.
    *Our teachers, also called corps members, go above and beyond traditional expectations to lead their students to significant academic achievement, overcoming the challenges of poverty despite the current capacity of the school system. Additionally, in succeeding with their students, corps members show that children in low-income communities and children of color can achieve at high levels, thus influencing the prevailing ideology.
    *At the same time, we know that teachers who go above and beyond to compensate for the extra challenges facing children and the weaknesses of the system are not the ultimate solution. We believe that the best hope for a lasting solution is to build a massive force of leaders who have the insight and conviction that comes from teaching successfully in low-income communities.
    *During their two-year commitments, corps members see firsthand that educational inequity is a problem we can solve and gain a grounded understanding of how to solve it. As alumni, they bring strong leadership to every level of the school system and across all fields, working to minimize the extra challenges facing children growing up in low-income communities, build the capacity of schools and school systems, and change the prevailing ideology through their examples and advocacy.

Students spend the year learning about the culture and history of a particular area, community, or issue. During spring break, groups travel to a selected site to engage in meaningful action towards a greater understanding of root causes of relevant issues. Students participate in critical reflection and analysis of social justice issues they experience first-hand. The program is dedicated to providing break opportunities to as many students as possible, while striving to increase community impact and student learning and aiming to help address societal problems with understanding and compassion. Critical elements of this process are recognizing community needs and assets while working in partnership with community members. Equally important is translating the experience into an understanding of the complexity and interconnectedness of social problems and making a commitment to being part of the long-term solution.Application Deadline for Site Leader Applications: Friday, April 11 by 5pm.

This year, we are restructuring the process for selecting ASB collaborative sites. We have a new application for potential collabs for the 2008-2009 school year, and we ask that you forward this application to any student groups that might be interested. Potential collaborative organizations must fill out the collab application, plus an application for two site leader nominees.

Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
    Project Categories
    Internships: Funding is available for undergraduate, graduate and professional school students to participate in internships abroad.

The International Institute is not able to offer assistance in obtaining internship placements.
    Research Projects: The fellowship also supports undergraduate, graduate and professional school students who are doing research abroad as part of their degree program. For the purposes of this award, research is defined as thesis research, participation in an on-going research project as part of a required degree-related work experience, or other
    independent research toward degree requirements. The research project does not have to be for academic credit.
    Preliminary Dissertation Research: Additionally, the award provides support for preliminary visits to prospective overseas dissertation sites by graduate students who are planning doctoral research on topics in area and international studies. These awards are intended to enable students to develop a firm foundation for their research. Doctoral students must not have reached candidacy by the time they begin the research award.
    Eligibility: University of Michigan undergraduate, graduate and professional school
    students are eligible, regardless of citizenship. Applicants must be
    enrolled in a degree program. Ph.D. candidates and students graduating
    before the start of the project are not eligible.  Internship or
    research projects must be at least one month in length, constitute at
    least a 30-hour per week time commitment (exclusive of any language
    training), and meet all requirements of the University Travel Policy and
    the Institutional Review Board.

    of the trip.  If you will be working with an established research project, a description of the organization and the activities in which you will be engaged must be included.
    --A letter of invitation is only required for internship applicants. It may be a letter or an email from the host organization describing the organization, the specific work, and the financial terms of the internship.  Research applicants may submit a letter of invitation if it is pertinent -- such as a letter from a faculty member at a university abroad acknowledging and supporting your plans, offering research oversight, or a letter from an archive granting access.
    --A budget which includes the total estimated cost for travel, lodging, food, visa fees, immunizations, insurance and research materials is required.  The amount is likely to exceed the maximum award.
    --Attach your resume or curriculum vitae.

Do not assume that you will receive an award. Do not purchase an airline ticket before the awards are announced if you cannot cover the cost yourself. Results will be announced by mid April, 2008.

    Humanity in Action (HIA) is a New York-based not-for-profit organization founded in 1998. HIA believes that an important test of a genuine democracy is how it treats its racial, ethnic, and religious minorities. It also believes that the commitment to democratic values and the protection of minorities cannot be taken for granted in the United States and Europe. HIA provides Fellows with a common educational background, experience working with peers across the Atlantic, and access to a network of board members and experts for lifelong guidance and support. Through Core Summer programs, Senior Fellows networks, and prestigious national and international internship opportunities, HIA encourages Fellows to become global leaders.
