Back again to announce a scholarship opportunity. This one is for students pursuing undergraduate degrees in engineering. The Future Engineers Scholarship, sponsored by Kelly Engineering Resources is designed to build student awareness of the vast, varied and unlimited potential within the field of engineering. The opportunity targets sophomores and juniors and the winner will receive a $5000 award that can be used to subsidize tuition, room and board, fees and books during the 2013 academic year. The winner will be chosen based on his/her academic merit and the depth of his/her academic and professional goals. Application materials will be reviewed to assess applicants' commitment to one day making a significant contribution to the field of engineering. Don't miss the bus children.
So it's October already. We're almost half way through the Fall 2012 semester. KUH!RAY!ZEE! Before you know it college and graduate school applications will be due. Last month I gave you a checklist to start the application process and I'm back to share some check points of how to proceed in completing your college and graduate school application process. Ain't these neat little monthly increments convenient ?!? Hopefully, this post will be helpful to all high school and college seniors and/or adults and working professionals who plan to submit applications for undergrauate or graduate programs that will begin in the Summer or Fall of 2013. Read on to make sure you're on the right track. Don't miss the bus children!
DISCLAIMER- There is quite a bit of whining in this post. Just let me.
That awkward moment when you realize it’s really real. Yea, so classes started and there I was coasting along in my course reading and class discussion. All of sudden I had deadlines; events at work and jargon laden discussion of dense texts on paradigms, epistemologies, and methodologies in each of my classes. All this while I’m trying to overcome that surreal “am -I –really- here” feeling that I still can’t seem to shake. My side-eye is perpetual. I want to go home. You’d think that given my most recent experience of working a full time job while going to graduate school, I'd find a sense of relief in "just" being a full time graduate student. <Insert Audible SCOFF here> I guess that's what I get for thinking... SMH!
Back again to review another website that has become one of my favorite resources. Today we’re talking file sharing …
Dropbox is a web based program that allows you to upload, back up and share files online. Have you ever gotten to the library/computer to realize that you left your flash drive at home? Or have you ever woke up to find that your hard drive has completely imploded and you lost your term papers and class notes to the war on PCs? Dropbox has been there for me when I've faced similar challenges along my academic journey. I think every student should have one. Click the link below for more information.
This post is for all those gearing up to submit graduate school applications this year. Successful applicants give themselves ample time to prepare their applications. It's September and deadlines will be here before you know it. Start compiling the various components of your application today.
Each month I’ll be posting a checklist of things to prepare in hopes that by mid November you'll be on schedule to submit all of your application materials by or before deadline. September’s checklist is as follows. Don’t miss the bus.
