Faculty: Request a Study Abroad/Away Class Visit Today

submitted by stoddard@augsburg.edu

As part of the University’s increased internationalization efforts, the Center for Global Education & Experience staff are visiting classes across campus to spread the word to your students about the many study, internship and research options available to them both abroad and off-campus around the US.

Can you spare 5-10 minutes in your class(es) in Fall semester for a message about study abroad/away programs? If so, please request a visit to your class online!

We can customize our message based on your course content, and on your majors’ needs and interests. We can address questions about scholarships, various length programs (some are better for WEC/AU students, STEM, Honors, athletes, etc) and other issues you might identify. And as always, we are happy to provide content to AugSem’s with a full class period on the topic of study abroad/away.

Apply for Mayo Innovation Scholars Program

submitted by kipper@augsburg.edu

Applications for Augsburg’s Mayo Innovations Scholar Program are now available on the URGO website! This program is highly competitive and is primarily designed for juniors and seniors.

What is MISP?
In the process of conducting research, Mayo Clinic scientists have developed new products that may be marketable. These products are submitted to the Mayo Clinic Office of Intellectual Property (OIP) for a thorough investigation of marketability. The OIP has a significant backlog of products to be investigated. One of the backlogged products or inventions is assigned to each MISP team for investigative research and formal presentation at Mayo Clinic.

Augsburg’s team will consist of an MBA student, 3 undergraduate science students, 1 undergraduate business/economics student, and a Licensing Manager from the Mayo Clinic OIP. The team will work together to understand the science and applications of the projects or innovations and analyze the market potential. Each undergraduate student on the team will receive $1,000. Teams will begin work during October and the final presentations will be in March.

To Apply:
Applications can be found on the URGO website. Completed applications must be submitted to urgo@augsburg.edu by Thursday, September 20th. If you have any questions about the program, please contact us at urgo@augsburg.edu, 612-330-1441, or stop in at Hagfors Center 101.
