Paul E. Klinge Scholarships — 2014 Competition

This scholarship is made available by the gifts of many friends of Professor Paul Klinge, a former Indiana University faculty member and administrator.  Professor Klinge served as Assistant to The President in the administrations of several Presidents, including President Herman B Wells.

Prof Klinge, previously a high school biology teacher, had a keen interest in furthering the career preparation of students planning to become science teachers and of those entering other science careers.  For many years he directed programs at Indiana University dedicated to helping students as they explored science career opportunities.

The following three scholarship competitions are offered in Professor Klinge’s memory.

 

For Undergraduates Planning To Be Science Teachers

Eligibility: Recipients must have completed their Sophomore Year, and have committed to a career in science teaching.  Scholarship recipients must be planning to enter either their Junior or Senior Year at Indiana University, Bloomington, in the Fall Semester 2014, and must be maintaining at least a cumulative Indiana University GPA of 3.5 in all classes taken at the time of application. Awardees will be selected based upon academic and professional recommendation criteria. Financial need will become a selection factor only in the event of a tie with another finalist. The receipt of a Klinge Scholarship last year will not disqualify the recipient from being eligible to receive a second-year scholarship.

Number, Size and Purpose of Awards: Normally, more than one scholarship will be awarded.  The size may vary, but normally will be between two and four thousand dollars.  Awards may be used for tuition, books, and room and board, at the recipient’s discretion.

Call for Submissions (Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference)!

 

 

The submission deadline for the 6th annual Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference is SATURDAY, MARCH 1!  We will be accepting submissions starting February 8.

 This conference is organized to provide undergraduate cognitive scientists with an opportunity to present their research to their peers from across the Midwest.

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Olaf Sporns as our keynote speaker this year. Dr. Olaf Sporns is a Provost Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University with a focus in computational cognitive neuroscience. Dr. Sporns is well known for his work with the Human Connectome Project.

Abstracts should be between 150-300 words, and potential topics span the full breadth of cognitive science. Many students have taken this as an opportunity to further develop a project they have started in a course, or to receive feedback on independent research.

Undergraduate students who wish to present a poster or talk can submit their abstracts through a form on the submissions page on the MUCSC website (http://mucsc.info/submissions.php). 

The conference will be held at the Bloomington, IN campus of Indiana University on Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12, 2014. 

 

Undergraduates are invited to submit their research projects as a 15 minute talk or a poster through the online submission form at http://mucsc.info/submissions.php. We encourage submissions from a wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, linguistics, economics, criminal justice, informatics, anthropology, and the humanities. The aim of the conference is to provide a venue for young, aspiring cognitive scientists to share their work with both peers and senior faculty, and to foster relationships among undergraduates throughout the Midwest region.

 

Everyone interested in Cognitive Science, regardless of age, is encouraged to register to attend the conference at http://mucsc.info/registration.php. Lunch will be catered, and we want to make sure there’s enough for everyone!  

 

Please e-mail: imziolko@indiana.edu for more information.

Accepting applications for Student Body Supreme Court of Indiana University

Are you interested in seeing how the IU judicial system works?

If so, you may be interested in serving on the Student Body Supreme Court of Indiana University. We are currently accepting applications from all majors for an Associate Justice position for the 2014-2015 school year. You can download the application online at http://www.indiana.edu/~court/justices/applications.shtml. Applications are due on Saturday, February 22, by 5:00pm via e-mail to court@indiana.edu. Please also feel free to contact the Court at this email address if you have questions.

 What is the Student Body Supreme Court?

 The Court is the judicial branch of the Indiana University Student Association (IUSA). Court members hear appealed judicial board cases, acting as student representatives on three-person judicial hearing commissions. The Court also adjudicates election disputes, certifies election results, hears challenges to the IUSA Constitution and Bylaws, and confirms the new IUSA executive administration each year. Additionally, each year the Court hosts a conference with campus judicial boards for the purposes of facilitating discussion about the campus judicial system. Court justices also serve as student appointees on advisory boards across campus. The Court is unique in that its decisions have the potential to impact the entire IU-Bloomington community. We encourage you to apply and look forward to receiving your application.
