PSO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM PROPOSAL DEADLINE – March 27, 2015
The Public Service and Outreach (PSO) Fellowship Program offers a semester-long opportunity for tenure-track or tenured faculty members to partner directly with a University of Georgia PSO unit to enhance their teaching, research, and engagement work.
The deadline for submission of proposals for the Fall semester Public Service and Outreach (PSO) Fellowship program is March 27, 2015.
The program’s purpose is for Fellows to enhance their academic courses, conduct research (e.g., applied, community-based, policy, program, evaluation) and apply their academic expertise to outreach initiatives. An anticipated outcome of the Fellowship experience is sustained involvement with scholarly activities related to outreach once Fellows return to their academic departments. Guidelines may be found at http://outreach.uga.edu/programs/pso-fellowship-program/.
Questions and proposals should be directed to Paul Brooks, Associate Vice President for Public Service and Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-542-6167.
GRADUATE STUDENT TRAVEL AWARDS – SPRING SEMESTER
Thanks to generous donors, the college continues to have funds to support graduate student travel funding for spring semester. We recently reviewed applications from 16 Ph.D. and M.S. students who requested travel support for eleven different conferences and professional opportunities. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the $16,568 it would have taken to cover all of the requests, however we were able to allocate more than $4,055 from these five funds to 16 graduate students:
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Don Bullard to the Office of Technology and Instructional Services in the position of Desktop Support. Don comes to us from OVPR where he served as IT Professional. His office in OTIS, 201B Dawson, and can be reached at email@example.com, 706-542-9097.
