WomanStats Coders

WomanStats is taking applications for the 2015 Summer Trainee Class, a series of sessions to train students as WomanStats coders.  To apply, fill out this application.  Generally, applicants should have a 3.4 GPA or higher and at least one year or more of schooling left so there is time to put their training to good use.  Students remaining at BYU for graduate school or moving to TAMU for graduate school are also welcome to apply.  After reviewing applications, we will choose a subset of applicants to train for coder positions.

We also connect student-coders and non-coders to professors who research in their areas of interest and professors who would like to publish with a student.  Please let me know if you are interested in applying for a research grant and include the area of your research.

The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations’ Washington, D.C. Summer Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students a ten-week professional, academic, and career opportunity internship in the nation’s capital.

•    Professional workplace experience: Interns are placed with one of over a dozen Near East and Arab world-related organizations in Washington, D.C., where they are expected to work 35–40 hours/week under the direct supervision of their host organizations.
•    Academic seminars: Interns take part in twice-weekly seminar sessions designed to provide them with greater depth of knowledge about the Arab world, to underscore the cultural, economic, and political diversity of Arab states, and to explore the intricacies of Arab-U.S. relations. There will be a particular emphasis, though not exclusively, on Arabia and the Gulf.
•    Site visits: Interns receive a behind-the-scenes look at many of the central institutions of federal government, national security policymaking, international diplomacy, and international business. Read More…
