FORD/SOROS/LUCE FELLOWSHIP INFO SESSION
The goal of the Ford program is to increase the presence of underrepresented minorities on American college and university faculties. Approximately 40 fellowships are offered annually for three years of doctoral funding. The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans provides opportunities for continuing generations of accomplished new Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The fellowship provides full funding for up to two years of graduate study in the U.S. Luce Scholars Program aims to provide an awareness of Asia among potential leaders in American society. Each year 15-18 scholars are chosen to participate in an individualized professional placement in one of 15 Asian countries.

PITCHING YOUR PROJECT: A WORKSHOP ON WRITING AN EFFECTIVE PROPOSAL
Writing a winning proposal can be a catch-22: Even though the best way to learn how to write a proposal is to be a reviewer, in order to review proposals, you must have already written a successful one. In this workshop, we’ll circumvent this paradox by using readers’ expectations of language, science, and argument to analyze the elements of effective proposals. How do proposals compare to other scientific documents? How do the various parts fit together? How can writers ensure that every page of the proposal develops and supports their overall argument? Presented by Judy Swan, Ph.D (and former NSF Fellow), Associate Director for Writing in Science and Engineering, Princeton Writing Program. Ideal for students applying for an NSF, as well as Churchill, Hertz, Labouisse, Sachs, ReachOut, Dale, and Goldwater.
