Weed Summer Research Program and MHC Summer Research Fellowship
An informational meeting on the Weed Summer Research Scholar Program and the Mount Holyoke Summer Research Fellowship will be presented by Tamatha Gaumnitz, dean of the classes of 2004 and 2006, and participants from the Summer 2003 programs on Thursday, November 6, 4–6 pm in the Morrison Room of Willits-Hallowell. All ALANA and financial aid recipients are urged to attend to learn more about these grants. Refreshments will be served.

Teacher Licensure Program Two very important meetings regarding the MHC teacher licensure program are coming up in November. They are:

Informational Session on the MHC Teacher Licensure Program Did you know that you have to apply to the MHC teacher licensure program? Do you know what subject licenses are available through MHC? All students interested in teaching at the early childhood (PreK-2), elementary (1-6), middle school (5-8), secondary school (8-12), visual art, or music level should come to an informational meeting on Wednesday, November 12, at 4:30 pm, in Room 301 of the Reese Psychology and Education Building. We now offer 16 different subject areas. Find out how and when to apply, what courses to take prior to applying, and what opportunities are available in the education field that would be enhanced by the education courses and/or teaching experience here at MHC.

There have been some state-mandated changes to all Massachusetts teacher licensure programs in recent years, and it is important that all students planning to apply to the MHC teacher licensure program come to this meeting to make sure they will have taken all of the required courses and tests prior to submitting an application to the teacher licensure application committee in the spring of junior year.

Teaching during January Term Have you always wanted to teach? Do you enjoy helping other people learn new things? Are you an international student who wants to gain an insider’s view of American public schools? Are you planning a career in early childhood, elementary, middle, secondary, or visual art or music education? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Education 332j or 324j, Observing and Assisting in Schools, may be the January Term course for you.

Students interested in teaching in early childhood (grades PreK-2), elementary (grades 1-6), middle (5-8), or secondary (8-12), schools during January Term should attend the information session on Wednesday, November 12, at 6:30 pm in Room 304 of the Reese Psychology and Education Building. This meeting is required in order to take this course; if you cannot attend, please call Lenore Carlisle (early childhood or elementary) at x2189 or Bev Bell (middle or secondary) at x3300 to request permission of the instructor. This course is required for students seeking teacher licensure.

December Deadlines for Financial Aid for Off-Campus Study—Laurel Fellowships Mount Holyoke offers the Laurel Fellowships for off-campus study for students whose own financial resources are not sufficient to cover the cost of study abroad or participation in one of the designated U.S. programs with which the College is affiliated. The deadline to apply for all or part of the 2004–2005 academic year (including spring 2005) is December 5, 2003, for study abroad, the American University Washington Semester program, and the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory Semester in Environmental Science Program. For the Twelve College Exchange, the deadline is December 15, 2003. All aid is for semester or academic year study except for the Ruth Sedgwick Scholarship, which also can be used for summer study or an internship in Spain or Spanish America, and the Marylee Bomboy ’67 Fund, which may be used for summer study abroad without restriction as to location. The Laurel Fellowships are the only financial aid offered by Mount Holyoke for study away; all students who expect to need assistance for study away must submit an application for the Laurel Fellowship even if they are applying to a program or exchange for which a fellowship is guaranteed. Additional information and forms are available in the study abroad library, which is located on the third floor of Mary Lyon Hall, and at

Department of Politics Fellowships
The Department of Politics is pleased to announce the
