Volunteering Opportunity for Engineering Students

Uncategorized No Comments »

Dear CoEN Students,

The Student Outreach Clinic is a free clinic operated by University of Nevada School of Medicine students under the guidance of licensed physicians. The clinic stands to provide quality healthcare for the uninsured and under-insured population of Northern Nevada while giving students hands-on training.

If you’re an engineering student interested in medical school, please consider applying to volunteer at the SOC. If selected, you will have the chance to shadow medical students, gain experience in a clinical setting and make a difference in the lives of fellow community members. Admission is competitive, as only 10 volunteers are selected each semester. You are encouraged to complete your application with care and submit it on time. The application and additional details about the clinic can be found at studentoutreachclinic.org. Applications are due by September 3rd.
If you have any other questions about the clinic or about the application process, please feel free to contact me at hallietaylor@medicine.nevada.edu I look forward to hearing from you!

Uncategorized No Comments »

EPA is announcing the fifth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge prize competition that asks student teams to design green infrastructure for their campus.  This year teams will incorporate climate resiliency and consider community engagement in their stormwater management designs.   EPA is calling for college and university students to form teams with a faculty advisor to participate in the competition.  EPA encourages teams to be multidisciplinary (comprised of planners, engineers, designers, scientists, and more).  Teams will be able to submit in either the master plan or demonstration project categories.

Registration for this year’s competition will be open from September 1-30, 2016.  Submissions for this year’s competition will be due December 16, 2016 and winners will be announced in Spring 2017.

EPA will offer faculty and student prizes. Faculty advisors will receive $3,000 for first-place teams and $2,000 for second-place teams. Student team members will receive $2,000 for first-place teams and $1,000 for second-place teams.

RISE academy for undergraduate men of color

Uncategorized No Comments »

Please encourage your undergraduate men of color to apply for this free program at Penn that prepares students for doctoral degrees in education, health, human services/social policy, criminal justice, and workforce development. More information is available online here:


Preparing Undergraduate Men of Color for Doctoral Study in the RISE Fields

We invite Native American, Black, Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander undergraduate men who are presently in their junior year to apply for participation in our Grad Prep Academy, a project that prepares scholars for doctoral study and research-related careers in the five RISE fields: education, health, human services and social policy, juvenile and criminal justice, and workforce development.

This program includes a four-day visit to the University of Pennsylvania. We will select 32 juniors (8 per racial/ethnic group) and cover all their travel expenses, lodging, and meals. During their visit to our campus in September 2016, the selected scholars will learn more about applying to and succeeding in graduate school; meet our faculty and hear about their research projects; interact with our graduate students and alumni; and tour Philadelphia.

We will also pay for Academy participants to take a four-week Kaplan course valued at $1,200 to prepare for the Graduate Record Exam (the GRE is required for admission to most graduate programs). Additionally, each Academy participant will be paired with a current male Ph.D. student of color who will offer mentoring throughout the graduate school application process, feedback on essays and other application materials, and advice on where to apply and ultimately enroll.

Academy participation in no way guarantees eventual admission to the University of Pennsylvania. If not at Penn, our larger aim is for all 32 scholars to enroll in highly selective graduate programs at top research universities in Fall 2017, immediately upon completion of their bachelor’s degrees.
