URGO Conference Travel Grants Available for Student Researchers

submitted by kundell@augsburg.edu

URGO offers up to $850 in travel funding for Augsburg undergraduates who have been accepted to present research at a professional conference. These funds can mitigate the high costs of travel such as airfare and lodging, and can contribute to students’ professionalization.

The application is available at the URGO website (www.augsburg.edu/urgo) at the “conference travel” page. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis, so students are encouraged to work with their research mentor to submit a travel application as soon as possible after receiving acceptance to a conference. The URGO Advisory Committee meets bi-monthly throughout the school year and will begin reviewing applications September 10th.

If you have any questions about undergraduate conference travel opportunities, please contact Kirsten O’Brien at obrienk@augsburg.edu or x1446.

URGO Academic-Year Research Application Available

submitted by kundell@augsburg.edu

Each year URGO offers $1,000 research grants for undergraduates who wish to gain research experience with an Augsburg faculty member. These grants require 100 hours of research over the course of the academic year and are a great way to ease into research or to continue work on an existing project.

The application is available at the URGO website (www.augsburg.edu/urgo) at the “on-campus research” page. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis, so student-faculty research teams are encouraged to submit proposals in the fall. The URGO Advisory Committee meets bi-monthly and began reviewing proposals September 10th.

If you have any questions about undergraduate research opportunities, please contact Kirsten O’Brien at obrienk@augsburg.edu or x1446

Augsburg Day Student Government: Draft Action Plan on Current Institutional Climate and Survey

submitted by bakere@augsburg.edu

This action plan drafted by members of Augsburg Day Student Government (ADSG) summarizes the student feedback that was gathered during a panel-led discussion held on November 29th titled “What’s Next?” by ADSG.

The panel-led discussion consisted of the Student Body President facilitating discussion and six other representatives of ADSG responding to ideas and interests presented by students. Students who were in attendance voiced their expectations of ADSG and the university’s administration.

This document has four sections: what feedback has come from students, what is currently being addressed by non-ADSG parties, what changes ADSG wants to see occur, and ADSG actions/communications/timeline.

There is also a link to a survey that students may fill out with any further comments, feedback, ideas or concerns.

Congratulations to Carden Olson, Summer Gilman scholarship winner

submitted by dvorak@augsburg.edu

AUGSBURG STUDENT CARDEN OLSON AWARDED U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE’S GILMAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY ABROAD!

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Carden Olson from Augsburg University was selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad this Summer 2019. Carden is a Psychology major with a minor in Sexuality Studies. He will be studying this summer in Copenhagen, Denmark through DIS (Danish Institute for Study Abroad).

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study. The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

Since 2008, fifty six Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $220,500.
