OHIO Fulbright Program makes national news
Two national media outlets have recently covered OHIO's participation in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. The Chronicle of Higher Education published a list of top Fulbright producing institutions by type for 2011-2012, and The New York Times website included contributions from Amelia Holowaty Krales, a master's student in the School of Visual Communication, who spent 10 months in the nation of Tuvalu on a 2010-11 Fulbright research grant.

Annual Postcard Project connects alumni with prospective students
The Ohio University Volunteer Alumni Admissions Network (VAAN) will begin accepting registrations for the 2012 Postcard Project in late December. The project is a recruitment tool used to establish personal contact with students who have been admitted to OHIO but have not yet confirmed their intent to enroll. By participating, alumni have the opportunity to create personal connections with prospective students and encourage them to attend OHIO.

In 2011, more than 230 alumni volunteered and sent out over 2,300 postcards to high school students in 32 states. Interested alumni will be provided with the students' contact information and OHIO-themed postcards with pre-paid postage.

Alumni are encouraged to visit the VAAN website to register as a volunteer and participate in this exciting program. For more information on the 2012 Postcard Project, click here.

For more information, please contact Katie Troyer, assistant director for communication and technical operations, at troyer@ohio.edu or 740-593-4229.

Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellows opportunity for recent graduates, retirees and career changers in the STEM fields
If you have a strong background in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (the STEM fields) and a desire to make a difference in Ohio's schools, we want you!

Ohio University, in conjunction with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, is seeking applications for the next cohort of Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellows who will change the world, one student at a time. Among seven Ohio campuses selected to participate in this statewide program (see wwteachingfellowship.org), Ohio University is the only one preparing Fellows to teach in rural schools -- and the only one offering Fellows full tuition support.

Each Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellow receives a $30,000 cash stipend, admission to a master's degree program, preparation in a rural high-need secondary school, support and mentoring throughout a three-year teaching commitment, guidance toward earning a teaching license, and a lifelong membership in a national network of highly respected intellectual leaders. In addition to the Fellowship, Ohio University is also offering a full-tuition scholarship to Teaching Fellows -- an excellent financial incentive not offered by other Woodrow Wilson Foundation partners in Ohio.

The recommended application deadline for the 2012 cohort of teaching fellows is Dec. 21, 2011 and enrollment is limited.
