Enjoy community and conversation over a simple lunch time at Shove Council, a student run discussion group at 12:15 p.m. in Sacred Grounds. This week we will be discussing how spirituality and non-violence may or may not be intertwined, as well as how our own spirituality can inform our understanding of war, self defense, and our lifestyles. If you enjoy free flowing conversation, friendly people and topics that include dreams, social justice, and the meaning of life, you might enjoy stopping by. With questions, contact i_marshall@coloradocollege.edu or kholbrook@coloradocollege.edu.

Are you interested in pursuing a research career?

You should consider nominating yourself for the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.

The Scholarship Program honoring Senator Barry Goldwater was designed to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. The Goldwater Scholarship is the preeminent undergraduate award of its type in these fields. Some example fields and career goals of recent recipients can be found in the Goldwater website: nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgoldwater.scholarsapply.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7CStudentDigest%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cd38391387a934588fb6a08d746c56ff9%7Ccfc7b13c12964387b308…

The scholarship works on a nomination process, meaning that students do not apply directly for the scholarship, rather Colorado College nominates up to four candidates via the faculty representatives (Professors Rebecca Barnes and Murphy Brausel). The four nominees selected by the faculty representatives will receive assistance from us in putting together a full application packet and they will submit then that packet to the national search.

To qualify you need to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and have sophomore or junior standing (nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgoldwater.scholarsapply.org%2Feligibility%2F&data=02%7C01%7CStudentDigest%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cd38391387a934588fb6a08d746c56ff9%7Ccfc7b1…). Please keep in mind the following:

. The goal of the scholarship is to encourage continued study in mathematics and physical sciences (e.g. you are planning on going to graduate school and doing research)
. The national committee hopes to increase the number of students pursuing these fields as long-term career goals.
. Experience suggests that the best candidates can speak passionately about a future career in research science.
. If you are interested in medicine, this scholarship is not for you unless you want to do medical research.
. Past research experience is key because it shows a clear interest in pursuing research long term.

Self-nominations are due on the 1st Friday of Block 3 (10/25/19) to Professor Rebecca Barnes.
Please include the following information in the email:
. Year in school (sophomore, junior)
. Major (or intended major)
. Short statement about research and extracurricular activities
. Future research goals

We will follow up with all nominees during week 2 of Block 3. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
