Congressional Fellowships

Congressional Fellowships are designed to provide a unique public policy learning experience, demonstrate the value of science-government interaction and bring technical backgrounds and external perspectives to the decision-making process in Congress. Fellows spend one year working as special legislative assistants on the staffs of Members of Congress or congressional committees, beginning in September.

This program, as well as many more fellowship programs is facilitated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations and a year-long seminar program on issues involving science, technology and public policy.

OSA offers two Congressional Fellowships. One program is jointly sponsored with the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the other is jointly sponsored with SPIE. If you would like to learn more about either of these programs, please click on the respective link below.

New Grads Get A Great Job Workshop

New Grads Get A Great Job - Dependable Strengths Workshop
Thursday, January 15 & Friday, January 16

$50 for a 2 day workshop + one follow-up appointment

Are you graduating this semester?
Still looking for a job?
Need answers to the big questions?

How can I convince people to hire me?
What am I good at that I really enjoy?
What should I do with my life?
How can I find jobs I want?

Many soon-to-be and new graduates don't know what they're going to do come commencement. Luckily, help is close at hand! UMBC's Career Services Center will be holding a two day workshop (Thursday, January 15 and Friday, January 16, 2009 from 9am-5pm) focusing on a non-traditional job search process that will open up new opportunities and allow you to find not just a job to pay the bills, but work that you love!

This two day workshop helps you to do just that! Unlike other career assessments and workshops, you'll be able to assess your strengths and identify what you enjoy, things that you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride. It motivates you to succeed. Ultimately by learning more about yourself through this process, you open up new opportunities.

The focus in this workshop is a non-traditional job search process. Through guided group discussions, participants will:

* Identify what you are good at and what you love to do
* Learn to articulate your worth to an employer
* Learn to make contacts whenever you may want them
* Succeed in interviews
* Work with a support team to increase self-confidence
* Develop a tool to help you be remembered and referred

Knowing what you're good at and love to do is key to getting employers to hire you. This workshop will allow you to uncover, believe in, and effectively communicate your true strengths.

Due to the nature of this workshop, there is a registration fee ($50 covers both days) and space is limited. We look forward to helping you change your life!
The total cost of the workshop is $50 and includes all materials. Register online at

December Grads -- We Need Your Help with the Graduating Student Report!

Once again UMBC will be asking graduating students to complete the
Graduating Student Survey. This survey is quick and online and
primarily asks about your post-UMBC plans. We want to hear from
everyone, even if your plans aren't yet finalized. UMBC collects this
information so we can compile relevant and recent data about employment
offers, graduate/professional school acceptances, and salary averages to
share with faculty, employers, and perhaps most importantly, future UMBC
students. You'll have an opportunity to complete the Report as you pick
up your cap and gown (December 1st - 3rd). For those students not
walking in commencement ceremonies, there will also be an opportunity to
complete the online survey via a follow up email request. Everyone who
completes the Report will be entered to win an iPod Shuffle. Best of
luck and thank you in advance for your support of this important
information gathering effort!

Igert Fellows Program

In Optical Techniques for Actuation, Sensing, and Imaging of Biological Systems (BioIGERT).
You can learn more about BioIGERT at our website at, including a detailed list of participating faculty and links to the on-line admissions applications.

The aim of the program is to train a new generation of scientists and engineers through a set of five multidisciplinary research thrusts: novel imagers for microscopy and active high-throughput microarrays; in vivo studies of gene expression and protein-protein interactions with novel molecular probes; optical techniques for manipulating cells and studying cell motility and growth; optical imaging of activity in neural circuits; and novel functional imaging systems for small animal and human tissues. Each BioIGERT Fellow will be empowered to work at the boundaries between disciplines and will be uniquely capable of contributing to advancements in this important emerging field.

Fellowship support from the National Science Foundation includes full tuition and fees and a stipend of $30,000 for the 2009-2010 academic year. Approximately 8-10 new fellowships are awarded each year.

This fellowship is open to any student (U.S. citizen or permanent resident) who is applying to a doctoral-tracked program in one of the participating departments at Columbia: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, or Physics.
