CfA: Mid-career Loeb Fellowship  Overview

The Fellowship is a unique opportunity to nurture the leadership potential of the most promising men and women in design and other professions related to the built and natural environment. It enhances the excellence of the GSD by exposing students to some of the most exciting midcareer professionals in their fields. John Loeb realized this potential when he endowed the Loeb Fellowship to fill a special place in American education: one that would greatly increase the practical effectiveness of the design professions. Nowentering its fourth decade, with over 300 alumni, the Fellowship has made substantial progress toward that goal.

The Loeb Fellowship was established in 1970 through the generosity of the late John L. Loeb, Harvard College '24. Based at the Graduate School of Design, the program offers ten annual postprofessional awards for independent study at Harvard. Through the Fellowship, participants have access to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Design, the Graduate School of Education, Harvard Business School, Harvard College, Harvard Divinity School, Harvard Law School, the Kennedy School ofGovernment, and M.I.T.

Who Should Apply

Loeb Fellows are accomplished, mid-career professionals who have beenengaged in their field for a minimum of five years, have compiled a record of exemplary work, and have been identified as leaders by their peers. Most applicants have expertise in the disciplines in which the Design School grants degrees - architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and urban design. Others come from related fields such as journalism, fine arts, nonprofit administration, and public service. Good candidates typicallyshare a passion for improving the quality of the built and naturalenvironment, and a commitment to improving their own skills in pursuit of that goal. Ideal applicants demonstrate a proven ability to create their own program of work or study and carry it through to completion.

Since the central focus and goal of the Fellowship is to improve theenvironment of cities and natural areas in the United States, mostapplicants are from this country. However, it is clear that the program's goal cannot be accomplished without reference to work being done in other parts of the world. Therefore, the Fellowship welcomes applications from qualified international practitioners. Diversity is a very important consideration for the Fellowship on many levels. Applications are encouraged from men and women, people of color, and those with both typical and atypical career paths.

The Fellowship is intended to serve practitioners, not to be an academic sabbatical. Applications from full-time academics are not encouraged. However, candidates whose work is divided between teaching and practice, and for whom this program will reinforce their work as practitioners, are welcome to apply.

Nomination Information

Nomination is not a requirement for application, however many excellent candidates learn about the Fellowship opportunity through the nomination process.

Please use this nomination form to introduce promising candidates to the Fellowship.

Either email the form directly to the Fellowship or download the form, fill it out and fax or mail to the Fellowship office.Once the Fellowship office receives the completed nomination form,application materials will be forwarded to the prospective candidate.The nomination process is anonymous. The Fellowship does not indicate the name of the nominator in the letter sent to the prospective applicant, however nominators are encouraged to contact the nominee and talk with them about the fellowship opportunity.

CfA: Michigan Grotius Fellowships, Advanced Legal Studies at Univers

Advanced Legal Studies at University of Michigan Law School

The University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor is one of the world's finest institutions of legal education. Located on the University of Michigan's Central Campus, in the beautiful William W. Cook Law Quadrangle, the Law School is home to a faculty widely recognized as among the nation's best, and to over 20,400 alumni worldwide, who hold prestigious positions in the public, private, and academic sectors in the United States and abroad and speak eloquently to the strength of the School.

Michigan Grotius Fellowships and Other Financial Support

Applicants to the graduate programs at the University of Michigan Law School are welcome to apply for Michigan Grotius Fellowships to assist in financing their graduate studies. Applying for financial aid, including Grotius Fellowships, does not affect a candidate's admissions decision, as all financial awards are determined only after admissions decisions have been made.

In making its selections, the Fellowship Committee evaluates an applicant's commitment to academic excellence, seriousness and depth of purpose and promise of professional success. It takes a particular interest in an applicant's pursuit of a career in academia or public service. In a typical year, between 30 and 40 percent of graduate students attending the University of Michigan Law School have been selected as Grotius Fellows.

Grotius Fellows are free to pursue their chosen program of graduate legal study and are not subject to any additional academic requirements. Past recipients of Michigan Grotius Fellowships have become leaders of the legal profession in their respective home countries as well as in the international community € Śďż" serving on the highest courts of their countries, on international courts, and in prominent positions in government, international organizations, and academic institutions around the world.

Financial aid recipients are selected among all admitted students who have requested assistance. Michigan Grotius Fellowships are awarded based on a combination of the student's financial need and his or her academic and professional background. Students wishing to apply for a Michigan Grotius Fellowship must complete the financial information in the application form.

Due to the many outstanding applications we receive, the demand forfinancial aid always exceeds available funds. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to also seek funding elsewhere from a variety of public and private sources, and to contact their home governments and employers, as well as the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, to seek advice and sponsorship for study abroad. Employment during the academic year is strongly discouraged.

CfA: Scholarships at Grinnell College

Why Grinnell?

You'll find rigorous academics, small classes, individual attention, and a close-knit community at many nationally ranked small liberal arts colleges.

So, what makes Grinnell special?

a.. Grinnell students are mature, responsible people who want to learn. The curriculum is rigorous, and its structure reflects that, in the end, each student is responsible for making the most of what the College offers.b.. Individually advised curriculum; only a handful of colleges in the country give you the freedom to design your own academic program.c.. Self-Governance; the system that enables students to provide input and make changes in almost every area of college life. This also means that no student is assigned the duty of policing other residents. Students are responsible for structuring their lives according to the tastes and desires of the campus community.d.. Resources; Grinnell professors have had great success obtainingexternal funding for valuable academic programs and research. For example, the science faculty recently earned competitive grants from the National Science Foundation for an automated DNA sequencer in the biology labs. Plus, the $1 .4 billion endowment ( 7 th largest per student among all public and private U.S. colleges and universities, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, 2006) allows seniors to conduct research through the Mentored Advanced Projects (MAPs).e.. What else will the large endowment get you? Technology; there are over 200 computers available for student use and most of them are available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.f.. Grinnell is one of the few remaining colleges that has a need-blind admission policy and offers generous financial aid to all admitted U.S. students.g.. Clean air, no traffic, a great view of the stars, and virtually no crime; there aren't too many places in the world that can offer that. h.. Fiske's Guide to Colleges did not say this about any other college: "Grinnell is a powerhouse on the national scene. Ever progressive, it was the first college west of the Mississippi to admit African Americans and women, and the first in the country to establish an undergraduate department of political science. It was once a stop on the Underground Railroad, and its graduates include Harry Hopkins, architect of the New Deal, and Robert Noyce, inventor of the integrated circuit, two people who did as much as anyone to change the face of American society in the 20th century."i.. Grinnell College welcomes students from all over the globe, and from a wide spectrum of faiths, ethnicities, and world views.

Scholarships for International Students

Grinnell College has had a long history of providing financial assistance to international students (students not holding a U.S. passport or U.S. permanent residency card). In recent years the College has reconfirmed its commitment to providing affordable education to students around the world by offering additional scholarship opportunities to new international students.Grinnell College endorses the philosophy that all students, regardless of their financial ability, should be able to pursue their studies at Grinnell if admitted. A full range of financial aid opportunities is available to international students. Admission to Grinnell is highly selective and the competition for financial aid is more competitive the greater the applicant's demonstrated financial need. The best students, who also maintain an active co-curricular involvement (sports, community service, music, theater, debate, student government, etc.), will be admittedregardless of financial circumstances.

1) Grants: Admitted international students who demonstrate financial need are eligible for financial assistance. Financial need is assessed by the Office of Student Financial Aid based on the information you and your family accurately and truthfully submit on the Student Application for Financial Aid.

2) International Merit Scholarships: Annually, a few admitted international applicants, who demonstrate exceptional scholastic abilities and leadership skills, are awarded Merit Scholarships. An applicant does not need to apply for financial aid or demonstrate financial need to be eligible for Merit Scholarships. Scholarship amounts vary. No additional applications, forms or essays are required to be eligible for Merit Scholarships.

3) Special Scholarships: Grinnell offers a limited number of extremely competitive comprehensive scholarships that will pay for the costs associated with attending Grinnell College (comprehensive fee of tuition, room, board, and fees, plus costs to cover insurance, books, and miscellaneous expenses) that the student and the student's family are unable to cover. These scholarships are reserved for students who are either a citizen of a country listed below, or a citizen of a country in the regionslisted below:a.. Africab.. Eastern and Central Europe (including those regions of the formerSoviet Union)c.. Latin Americad.. Middle East and Asiae.. Nepalf.. People's Republic of ChinaRegardless of citizenship:a.. Native Speaker of Russian (available every other year, will be offered again for 2009) All of the above scholarships are renewable for three additional years of the student's studies at Grinnell College.

All applicants applying for financial aid must complete the International Student Application for Financial Aid which is sent with the Grinnell College Application for Admission or the Foreign Student Financial Aid Application form printed by the College Board. There are no additional forms required to complete for any of the three categories of financial aid listed above. The Admission Committee will automatically consider you for the scholarship if you are eligible.

Employent: On campus employment is available to students. Under the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) regulations, international students are permitted to work on campus (not to exceed more than 20 hours a week). During the academic year, a student can earn approximately $2,000 by working an average of 10 hours a week. We discourage students from working more than 10 hours a week because of the demanding course load at Grinnell College. Off campus employment is more difficult to obtain for international students due to immigration regulations restricting employment for non-US citizens.

Loans: The College does offer some loans to international students. However, to be eligible for a loan, the College requires the student have a U.S. citizen as the co-signer who lives in the United States. A co-signer is someone who is willing to sign the loan agreement with you and is promising that, in the event you are unable or unwilling to pay the balance of the loan, the co-signer will be responsible for paying the loan. The maximum loan for each year is $4,000.

CfA: Scholarships to Bates College, Maine  Why Bates?

Rated among the best liberal arts colleges in the nation, Bates' curriculum and faculty challenge students to develop powers of critical assessment, analysis, expression, aesthetic sensibility, and independent thought. Our 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio puts students in direct contact with Bates' extraordinary faculty. In fact, you can start right off in a First-Year Seminar, with just 14 other students and a professor.

Bates has a long tradition of educating students from abroad as well as those from the United States. Currently we have enrolled students from more than 70 different countries ranging from Azerbaijan to Zimbabwe. With so many cultures present on campus, the International Community is both diverse and active.

International students also benefit from an international orientationsession, a specific adviser in the Dean of Students Office, and campus housing that is available during the summer and holliday periods.

Our most important offering, however, is nationally recognized strength of our academics. Bates is consistently ranked as one of the top liberal arts colleges in America, with world-class facilities in all areas of the sciences, and an outstanding reputation for departments such as Economics, Political Science, and Biology.

Making College Costs Affordable: Need-Based Financial Aid

The College expets students and their families to contribute as much as possible toward the Comprehensive Fee, which covers tuition, room, board, and various other charges. The Comprehensive Fee for 2006-2007 is $44,350, subject to adjustment in accordance with changing operational costs. Estimated additional expenses total $2,050 for books, supplies, laundry, and incidentals.

The College provides need-based financial assistance for all of itsstudents, including non-U.S. citizens who cannot fully meet the cost of the tuition. Merit and athletic-based scholarships are not offered. Financial aid awards are made on the basics of documented need, and are available only for students who decide to enroll at Bates. There is no particular amount of aid that is offered since each family`s circumstance is unique. The College pledges to meet demonstrated need in full for the duration of the student`senrollment. Since Bayes makes this commitment to provide financialassistance, the competition to be admitted is very intense.

A typical international financial aid package includes three parts: a Bates grant (which does not need to be repaid to the College]), a campus job that involves working up to 15 hours per week, and an annual contribution, usually earned through summer employment.

In 2006-2007 the average financial aid award for international students was $36,750. Each year international students at Bates receive financial aid packages that meet the full need of their families, totaling approximately $2 million.

Further information about Bates is available on the internet athttp://www.bates. edu/ In the Admission section, you will find a direct link to the Bates international sites, as well as a link to common application, supplement and financial aid forms.

Financial Assistance for International Students

Assistance Based on Achievement, Potential, and Need

Washington University provides financial assistance for freshman andtransfer international students. Financial assistance for qualified students is considered on a case-by-case basis. Although we do our best to provide competitive financial assistance packages, funding limitations prevent the University from providing financial support for all applicants who deserve it, nor is it always possible to meet every recipient's requirements. Financial assistance is renewable for each year of undergraduate study, as long as the student is making normal progress toward the degree and maintaining a good academic record. Finally, United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regulations severely restrict the employment of international students. Student should not, therefore, count on funds from any possible employment to defray the costs of tuition and living expenses.

International students may submit either the CSS-PROFILE or the Washington University International Financial Aid Application. The Financial Aid Application is sent to all applicants for admission. Or, click here to complete the International Financial Aid Application online. The CSS-PROFILE is available on the Internet from the College Board at

Academic Scholarships and Fellowships for FreshmenWashington University recognizes outstanding achievement by awardingfreshman scholarships and fellowships in a variety of competitions and programs, many of which have no restrictions on citizenship. These extremely competitive awards are based solely on merit, regardless of family circumstances. Freshman applicants must complete both the application for admission and the scholarship application by January 15 to be considered. Only students who have not completed any university-level education are eligible to apply for these academic awards.

All applicants will receive further information regarding financialassistance. You will also want to consult an advising center in your country operated directly by, or in close cooperation with, the United States Information Service. These centers have books and files on sources of financial assistance for studying in the United States. Ask the United States Embassy or Consulate for the location of the nearest advising center.
