This series of 5 workshops will introduce students to awards that fund activities such as teaching English or conducting research abroad with a Fulbright award, taking part in a post-graduate program in the United Kingdom or Ireland or applying for an NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates or Graduate Research Fellowship. The workshops will take place on Wednesdays from 4:15 – 5:15 in room 217 of the Hutton Honors College and the first will be on March 9. The workshops are free, do not bear credit and registration is not required. Details and a schedule in the Events section at Competitive Awards Deadlines and Events.
Dear Biology students,
The Kelley School of Business has developed a new program called “College+Kelley” and has up to 6 scholarships for strong IU students graduating in Biology who wish to supplement their undergraduate degree in Biology with a Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) degree from the Kelley School of Business. The scholarships will cover up to 100% of tuition, and the program does not require any prior business or information systems courses. Something else to note is that if you have a GPA above 3.2, we can waive the GRE requirement.
Applications are due April 1, 2016.
If you are earning a major through the IUB Department of Biology and thought you might apply for 2016 departmental scholarships and awards, but didn’t get your drop box request in by the February 2 deadline, you can still do so. Requests for drop boxes MUST be received no later than noon on Friday, February 12. When emailing Kathy Wyss for your drop box, be sure to include the name and email address of the science faculty member who will be writing your letter of recommendation.

The Kelley School of Business’s MS in Information Systems Program (http://kelley.iu.edu/isgp/) is hosting a case competition for undergraduate students from all majors and schools at IU to learn about case analysis and have the opportunity to win thousands of dollars in scholarship money towards the MSIS program. Teams of three undergraduate students will have the opportunity to work with one randomly assigned MSIS graduate student to develop a solution to a common business problem. Team solutions will be judged by faculty and industry professionals. Members of winning teams (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) will walk away with MSIS scholarship money and their share of a team cash prize. The competition will take place the week of February 8th.
Please visit the website to sign up for the competition and see the attached flyer. http://kelley.iu.edu/msisa/3_1Comp.html
