GO! Scholarships are now open

The Global Opportunities office in the Center for Experiential Learning & Diversity is accepting applications for the GO!, Fritz, and GO! STEMXchange scholarships for study abroad. These undergraduate awards range between $2,000 to $5,000. Students whose programs begin during winter or spring quarter 2017 should apply during the fall application cycle. The application deadline for all three of these scholarships is October 25. Students who plan to begin study abroad in the summer or fall of 2017 should wait and apply in the spring (look for announcements about the spring application cycle in winter quarter). To apply or obtain more information about scholarship eligibility requirements, please visit the Global Opportunities webpage: http://expd.uaa.washington.edu/globalopportunities/

The first writing workshop for these awards is scheduled for Thursday, October 6th from 6-7pm in MGH 171. The purpose of this workshop is to give students guidance as they begin writing their application essays. Students can sign up to attend the workshop through the Global Opportunities webpage as well as through starting an online application for any of these awards. More advanced writing sessions will be offered as we move closer to the deadline. If students have questions about study abroad program offerings or course credit, please encourage them to visit the UW Study Abroad office in 459 Schmitz Hall (they offer drop-in advising between 10am-4pm daily) or e-mail studyabroad.

If students have questions about these scholarship programs or would like to set up a scholarship advising appointment, please have them send an email goglobal.

Queer Student Commission Internships!

My name is Alice Crowe, and I am this year’s director for the Queer Student Commission. I’m writing today to tell everyone that we are current accepting applications for new interns who are interested in LGBTQIA+ activism for the 2016-2017 school year. Interns are expected to want to get more involved in queer activism and help me plan, organize, and execute a wide variety of events, many of whom have historically been designed by the intern team. I got my start in the community by being an intern, and after two years, I run the program!

Interested? Click here to be sent to our application. We are looking for at least five interns, however we may have more than five depending upon demand. All details are included in the application. Applicants are expected to have a short interview with myself to meet and greet and discuss their interest in greater detail. Applications are due no later than Monday, October 9th.

If you have any questions, I can be reached at asuwqsc.

Yours,

Alice T. Crowe, Director

Spaces available in Pol S 405B – Immigration Politics and Policy

Pol S 405B – Immigration Politics and Policy

Instructor: Sophia Jordán Wallace

MW 9:30am – 11:20am

Parrington Hall 206

This course explores the history of immigration in the U.S., public policy that has been aimed at immigration flows or immigrants, and political consequences that resulted. Immigration policy is a highly salient and controversial issue in the current political landscape. This course will grapple with notions of citizenship and ‘illegality’ while examining backlash to demographic changes. Rhetoric on immigration is increasingly divisive and has caused differing reactions among various groups of people and voters. A considerable portion of the course will address social movement responses such as the 2006 protests. Legislation aimed at immigrants such as Arizona’s SB1070, DREAM Act and Proposition 187 in addition to other local, state, and federal measures will also be explored at length. Finally, this course will examine undocumented immigration, dynamics on the border, and the politics of policing and immigrant detention.

This course will draw on scholarly work from a variety of fields including Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Latino Studies, and Ethnic Studies. It will also actively engage current events including discussions of hunger strikes in detention facilities and the framing and role of immigration policy in the 2016 Election. We will watch films, such as Crossing Arizona and 9500 Liberty, and political campaign advertisements highlighting immigration. We will also examine political cartoons and media depictions of immigration.

For more information about the course, contact Prof. Sophia Jordán Wallace – sophiajw.

Preparing for Graduate School – GRDSCH 200 Autumn quarter 2016 (SLN# 15647)

As you may know, the Graduate School offers an excellent class for students interested in exploring graduate study in more detail: GRDSCH 200, Preparing for Graduate Education. The class has plenty of room for fall. SLN# 156457, offered on Friday afternoons from 1:30-3:20p.

While this course is now offered every quarter, the timing in autumn quarter is perfect for graduating seniors who know they are applying to graduate school later this fall/winter. It will set them up to fully understand the application process, work on their statements well before deadlines hit, consider funding issues, and ultimately make decisions. It is also great for the graduating senior who is unsure of what graduate school entails and whether they should consider it in their future. Especially if they are not sure of what they might end up doing when they graduate! Juniors thinking ahead will also benefit from the class. Included is discussion and work on preparing an effective application.

This is a 2-cr, CR/NC class, perfect to balance out an autumn quarter schedule! Send students our way!

Best regards,

Helene
