Pickering & Rangel Fellowships for students interested in Foreign Service careers – applications due in September!

Undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni who are interested in careers with the US Department of State Foreign Service are encouraged to apply for two different, but similar, fellowships that provide funding for graduate studies leading to a career as a Foreign Service Officer.

The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program Graduate Fellowship and the Thomas R. Pickering Graduate Fellowship programs have both been available for many years, with many UW students and alumni selected as Fellows. Both programs encourage the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. The big news this year is that both programs are now housed at Howard University, though still operating separately and independently of each other; and both programs now have application deadlines in September (rather than January). These changes will hopefully encourage and make it easier for interested students to apply for both!

Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Program Graduate Fellowship:  http://www.rangelprogram.org/

Applications due Sept. 17, 2018 (for graduate studies starting fall 2019)

Thomas R. Pickering Graduate Fellowship Program:  https://pickeringfellowship.org/

Applications due Sept. 20, 2018 (for graduate studies starting fall 2019)

Brief descriptions applicable to both:

These fellowship programs seek to attract and prepare outstanding youth people, who represent ethnic, gender, social, and geographic diversity, for careers in the Foreign Service of the US Department of State in which they can help formulate, represent and implement U.S. foreign policy. Both programs select fellows annually in highly competitive nationwide processes and supports them through two years of graduate study, internships, mentoring, and professional development activities. These programs both encourage the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. Fellows who successfully complete either of these programs and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers, in accordance with applicable law and State Department policy.

Although these programs are separate and independent of each other, the basic program structures, benefits, and eligibility are essentially the same. Students can and should apply for both!

Each program plans to award 30 fellowships of up to $37,500 annually for a two-year period for tuition, room, board, books, and mandatory fees for completion of two-year master’s degrees.  This includes up to $21,500 per year for tuition and mandatory fees and an academic year stipend of $16,000.

Eligibility requirements applicable to both:

  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Applicants  must be seeking admission to enter graduate school in the fall of 2019 for a two-year program at a U.S. university in an area of relevance to the Foreign Service. They can be in their senior year of their undergraduate studies, graduating by June 2019, or they can be college graduates.
  • Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher on a 4.0 scale at the time of application.

Volunteers for UW Summer Youth Programs!

I am looking for a few brave volunteers who are on campus this summer and are willing to build and help middle school girls design and build circuit alongside several other activities that are designed to draw young people into engineering (especially electrical).  EE is the best!
If you have some time during the week of July 23-27 or July 30-August 3, here is where we most need help; a minimum commitment of 90 minutes (1 and a half hours) would be much appreciated, but any time you have available to help work with these kids is welcome.  I will be teaching each program alongside a K-12 instructor, but during labs, we particularly need EEs who are willing to work with students to help troubleshoot and get circuits, soldering, and other activities working like a charm!
All labs and activities will be provided in advance so you can become familiar with them prior to working with our middle school students.
Following are the times where we most need volunteers (those in bold are most in need of EE expertise), along with the activities that we’ll be doing during those times:
July 23, Making Display Circuits:   1:30-4:00 p.m.
July 24, Making Sensor and Display Circuits:   10:15-Noon; 1:00-4:00 p.m.
July 25, Soldering:  10:45 a.m. – Noon; 1:00-4:00 p.m.
July 26, Design, Testing, and Building Circuits:   10:45 a.m. – Noon; 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Free Blood Test and Paid research study for noninvasive hemoglobin measurements with a phone

My name is Edward Wang. I am part of a UW research team conducting a research project on measuring hemoglobin levels with a phone. 

To participate in this study, you will need to be willing to do a free blood test (Complete Blood Count) administered at UW Hall Health within 24 hours of the in-office data collection. A study staff member will assist you in scheduling the blood draw after your in-office study, but generally its the most convenient if you can reserve half an hour after your appointment to go to the clinic. We will receive your blood test result after 2 weeks and upon request can forward the test information to you via email. 

Testing consists of two type of tasks: measuring blood hemoglobin levels using an off the shelf finger sensor Masimo Pronto-7 and placing your hand on a mobile phone camera three times. During the mobile phone task, we will take a photo plus three 30 second videos while applying the on device flash on the mobile phone. The entire study will last around 20 minutes, including the pre/post-study briefing. You must be above 18 years of age to participate.

The goal of this research is to develop an algorithm to measure blood hemoglobin levels using a mobile phone noninvasively. This solution will make hemoglobin monitoring a significantly easier task, which is essential for patients with chronic anemia or other blood conditions.

If you choose to participate, you will be paid $10 as compensation for your time in the form of an Amazon Giftcard.

The study will take place in UW CSE522. The study will take place between the dates: 7/17 – 8/02. If you are interested in participating please sign up for a 20 minute slot in either of the following link:

https://hemoglobinstudy.youcanbook.me/

Thank you for considering participation in our study.

Please direct scheduling inquiry to our study coordinator: Susanne Kirchner-Adelhardt at sadel@uw.edu

For non-scheduling questions, please direct it at: Edward Jay Wang at ejaywang@uw.edu
