Applications for International Development Certificate Program – due April 25th!

The International Development Policy and Management Certificate (IDCP) is a one year program that gives students the foundation needed for addressing pressing international issues in developing countries. The program explores the challenges of economic, political, and social development. We have recently updated the IDCP curriculum and requirements to reflect our changing world. The structure is now more flexible to attract students from diverse disciplines, and emphasizes ethics and economic literacy, better enabling graduates to be expert practitioners of project management and program development in international settings.

Core Courses: The first course (PBAF 531) examines different policy environments leaders must address to achieve policy in comparative and international settings. The second course (PBAF 533) serves as an introduction to the economics of sustainable international development. The third core course (PBAF 532) is a seminar that gives students the opportunity to hear from professionals in the field during panel discussions. Students will produce a short summative paper as a final project.

To apply for the Evans School International Development Certificate program, you will need to submit the application materials below by April 25.

  • A letter of application with the following four sections, each between 125–250 words:
    • A narrative introducing yourself, your background, areas of interest, professional and academic experience, strengths, and future intentions.
    • A description of your professional experience, internationally and/or domestically, including what you did, where you were, what you learned, relevant technical and language skills, and other accomplishments or experiences.
    • A description of your areas of interest within relief and/or development and how you would contribute to the diversity of disciplines, perspectives, regions, and experiences of your cohort class.
    • An explanation of how this certificate program will help you meet your academic and professional goals, answering the question, “Why does it make sense for you to earn this certificate?”
  • A current resume listing both educational and professional experience.

Lavender Graduation 2014

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Lavender Graduation 2014

Graduate and celebrate all of you! Lavender Grad is open to any student eligible, at any level (undergrad or graduate/professional) for a graduation in the 2013-2014 (including fall 2014) academic year. The Q Center and QSC host Lavender Graduation as a time for the UW queer, trans*, two-spirit, same gender loving, and allied communities to come together and celebrate our multiple identities, our accomplishments, and sheer AWESOMENESS. You do not have to be graduating or be of a certain sexual or gender identity/orientation/expression to participate and/or attend the Lavender Graduation year-end celebration. Everyone is welcome and wanted!!!

Here is what graduates say about Lavender Graduation:

“I felt more embraced and supported by community than I had during the rest of my time as a PhD student. Lav Grad was awesome!”

“Lav Grad was such a warm and welcoming ceremony that instilled such a sense of pride…I got to stand in front of my friends and family and have the feeling that all parts of my life got to come together for the first time.”

The whens, wheres, whys and hows:

When: TUESDAY, June 10th, from 6-8:30 p.m. Graduates please arrive by NO LATER than 5:15 p.m.

Where: THE UW TOWER, Mezzanine Level Cafeteria (Brooklyn Avenue is closed in front of Tower, please make parking arrangements

​in the UW Tower lot ($15 for special graduation day pass), ​
on the street, on campus, or in the Hotel Deca parking lot ​. Parking for people with disabilities will be available in the UW Tower lot​
).

How: IF YOU ARE GRADUATING; please register here.

Dress: You can wear whatever you want! This is your graduation and as queer and trans* folks we are often “required” by work, school, family, culture, etc. to dress in ways that do not necessarily fit our tastes. If you wish to wear the cap and gown, wear it. If you want to appear in drag, do it. All clothing has cultural significance, but sometimes we want to wear cultural regalia that honors our history,ourselves and the moment, please do so! If you want to dress up, or down, go for it. You want to be comfy, have at it. This is your night. All of your identities are celebrated as is the awesomeness that is you and our UW queer communities!

“Lavender Graduation was one of the most joyous moments of my life so far. It was wonderful to be in a room with so many queer people and allies, celebrating making it through 4 years. The whole event was amazing and life affirming.”

Fulbright U.S. Student Program – UW Information Sessions

Are you currently a junior, senior, graduate or professional student or a recent bachelor’s, master’s or JD graduate looking for a fully-funded abroad experience during the 2015-16 academic year? Consider the Fulbright U.S. Student Program (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/home.html). This program is designed to give students, artists, and other professionals opportunities to pursue research, graduate study or English teaching experience in over 155 nations worldwide.

The application cycle for the 2015-2016 Fulbright U.S. Student competition will open on May 1, 2014. The campus deadline for applications is September 10, 2014.

WHAT IS A U.S. STUDENT FULBRIGHT GRANT?
  • It allows for individually designed study/research or an English Teaching Assistantship. You can propose a project and/or study plan that will take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.
  • It provides support for study/research/teaching in a single country. (Limited opportunities exist for traveling to more than one country.) You can meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.
  • It facilitates cultural exchange. Through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in daily tasks, you can gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.
  • It promotes mutual understanding. Through engagement in the community, you can interact with your hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom.
