1) Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields.

The Teaching Fellowship includes:
•admission to a master's degree program at a partner university
•preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
•extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
•a $30,000 stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
•support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
•support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education
•lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders

2) Teach English in China: Ameson Education and Cultural Exchange Foundation in Washington, DC
We are a non-profit organization looking to provide recent graduates with a job opportunity to teach English in China for one year through our Ameson Year in China (AYC) program. Participants will receive a monthly stipend, free housing, reimbursed airfare, free health insurance, and more.  The only qualification requirements are to be a native English speaker and have graduated from an accredited US college/university.

If you know anyone who would be interested, please consider emailing the attached AYC Program Brochure and Job Listing to students who will have graduated by the end of this academic school year.  Feel free to also post the brochure up around your department.  This is a great opportunity for recent graduates to work abroad, learn a new culture, and enhance their resumes.

2) Opportunity for supported Ph.D. studies at The University of Texas, Arlington

Here's an opportunity for a fully supported Ph.D. study in Health Informatics in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at The University of Texas at Arlington. For this opportunity we have Department of Education backed funding (through a Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need grant) to support U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident students for their Ph.D. studies. This opportunity is open to both M.S. and B.S. graduates, the latter through our expedited B.S. to Ph.D. program. The theme of our GAANN program is health informatics, an area in which our Department has many excellent researchers, focusing on such high tech research as bioinformatics, medical imaging, medical robotics, smart environments, smart health devices, etc.

We are lenient with our Ph.D. application deadlines and would love to talk to your qualifying students. Please see attached flyer for more information.

4) University of Wisconsin, Stout campus is offering a Professional Science Masters in Industrial and Applied Mathematics, starting with our very first class of students in the Fall of 2013.  This advanced degree will help you gain strong analytical and problem-solving skills built upon a background in computing, mathematics, statistics and basic science.  Students majoring in engineering or physics can also qualify, and should email us.

Our department is a Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science combined department with a large faculty across disciplines. Our undergraduate major in Applied Math & Computer Science has seven exciting concentrations and a 100% placement rate after graduation. We are located in Menomonie, Wisconsin, which Smithsonian Magazine rated as one of the top 20 best small towns in America.

If you want to find out more about the program, here is the link to the website: http://www.uwstout.edu/programs/psmiam/index.cfm. For students who want to apply, they simply go to the graduate school website: http://www.uwstout.edu/grad/prospect/apply.cfm.

5) The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers.

The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, with graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. The Registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of Anthropology/Archaeology, Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Economics, Education, Engineering, English and Linguistics, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History, Journalism and Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.

Any undergraduate may go to http://www.cur.org/projects_and_services/registry/ to fill out a simple information form. Students may also elect to complete a longer curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student and records will be made available to bona fide Graduate Schools that contract with CUR for this service.
