2009 NASA Aeronautical Scholarship Program

The NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program which is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Is officially accepting applications for the 2009 Aeronautics Scholarship Program. It is expected that approximately 20 two-year undergraduate, and 5 two-year with an option of a third year graduate scholarships will be awarded annually to students pursuing aeronautical engineering 
and related fields such as Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics. Total allocated award amounts are up to $40,000 for undergraduates and up to $125,000 for graduates. These funds will go towards tuition and related costs, as well as to provide paid summer internship opportunities at a NASA research center.

Competitive applicants interested in this amazing opportunity should begin completing application materials immediately. A completed application will consist of profile information, academic background (including transcripts), a resume, an essay for undergraduates, a proposal for graduates, letters of recommendations, and any test scores, such as GRE's, when appropriate.

Completed applications will be collected electronically from September 5, 2008 through January 16, 2009. To learn more about eligibility requirements, award benefits, application instructions, and to apply online, visit https://nasa.asee.org, or contact nasa.asp@asee.org with any questions
regarding this program. For additional information on NASA's aeronautics
research and other opportunities please log on to http://aeronautics.nasa.gov.

New NIH Policy to Fund Meritorious Science Earlier

Thursday, October 16, 2008

We are pleased the annouce the launching of GradFund Wiki!

We are pleased the annouce the launching of GradFund Wiki!

GradFund Wiki is a newly created wiki for Graduate School New Brunswick students and their faculty mentors to share information and knowledge about graduate student grant and fellowship competitions. Our graduate student community has a great deal of expertise and knowledge about fellowships and grants for graduate study and research. With our wiki, we seek to create a knowledge base that can benefit all of our graduate students.

The wiki is located at http://gradfund.pbwiki.com/. Access is limited to the Rutgers, Graduate School New Brunswick community so when you first visit the site, you will need to follow a simple procedure to request access. Once you have access to the site, feel free to read the material, post a question or some information. The wiki is un-moderated and is a place for graduate students to freely and openly share information. Resource Center staff will occasionally post information or questions to help generate postings but for the most part, the wiki will be driven by graduate student postings.

Visit the site, post some information and help to build the GradFund Wiki!

New NIH Policy on Resubmission (Amended) Applications

NIH announces a change in the existing policy on resubmission (amended) applications (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/amendedapps.htm). Beginning with original new applications (i.e., never submitted) and competing renewal applications submitted for the January 25, 2009 due dates and beyond, the NIH will accept only a single amendment to the original application. Failure to receive funding after two submissions (i.e., the original and the single amendment) will mean that the applicant should substantially re-design the project rather than simply change the application in response to previous reviews. It is expected that this policy will lead to funding high quality applications earlier, with fewer resubmissions.

Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Program

The deadline for these prestigious fellowships from the Department of Energy is January 12, 2009.
