Public Forum to discuss Campus Sustainability Fund on January 12th -The Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) is a major, student-led investment in a greener, more sustainable campus. It will provide funding for projects that increase campus sustainability, prioritize student leadership and involvement, and educate UW students, faculty, and staff in order to create a more environmentally responsible campus culture. The creation of the CSF will allow students to set the University's environmental agenda and create educational opportunities in the process. This is an incredible opportunity for students to get engaged and create a lasting, positive change on campus. Join us on January 12th at 4:00 in Hub 200AB to ask questions, raise concerns, offer suggestions, or volunteer to help.
Are you an undergraduate planning to study abroad in Germany next year? Consider applying for a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). DAAD offers a number of scholarships to support undergraduates studying, researching and interning in Germany. The application deadline for most programs is fast approaching on Jan. 31, 2010.
The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards will hold an information session this Friday, Jan. 8 at 2:30pm in MGH 258 to review the basics of these DAAD programs and to provide insights into the application processes:
DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship - Scholarships for 4 to 10 months of study, thesis research or an internship for students in any academic field.
