The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is offering grants to 23 schools that are developing new graduate programs or enhancing existing programs that prepare scientists to translate laboratory discoveries into new medical treatments and diagnostics.
Baylor College of Medicine*Since 2005, Baylor College of Medicine has been working towards an ambitious goal: Train a new generation of leaders in translational research who are capable of bringing together investigations at the lab bench with clinical research and medicine. With HHMI support, Baylor launched the Translational Biology and Molecular Medicine graduate program, which has grown from nine to 51 students in four years. The graduate students follow a cutting-edge curriculum built on a foundation of basic science and clinical medicine courses. Guided by two mentors, a basic scientist and a clinician, students supplement their classroom studies by working side-by-side on interdisciplinary research projects with medical teams. These interactions can bring the necessary perspective to help students pursue research projects that have the greatest impact on human health. A secondary benefit of the program is that student mentoring has fostered new research collaborations between basic science and clinical faculty at Baylor.URL: www.bcm.edu/tbmm
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer CenterNew technologies are leading to important advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has created a graduate program that focuses on training scientists who can help develop the next generation of cancer treatments and diagnostics. During their first year, students in the Cancer Biology Graduate Program learn about the biology, treatments, and existing model systems used by cancer researchers, with an emphasis on key metabolic pathways that malfunction to cause cancer. The clinical section of the program will give students a chance to observe physicians as they treat cancer patients. In the clinic, students will see how physicians and health care workers rely on a variety of technologies to identify and classify cancers. The students will also choose a clinical mentor, whom they will follow on grand rounds and in clinical consultations with patients and their families.URL: www.sloankettering.edu/gerstner
We had another record year of applications for the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program and the fellowship committee undertook the very difficult task of reviewing all these applications. All of the research projects were very exciting to us and selecting the final graduate fellowship recipients was an extremely difficult decision. Bill Dally, our Chief Scientist, and the rest of our review committee would like to congratulate the 2010 NVIDIA Graduate Fellows!
The College of Charleston Class of 2010 stepped up to the plate and knocked the ball out of the park! They are leaders, activists, record-setting athletes and engaged scholars, who personify the College of Charleston experience. Congratulations, Class of 2010! More information about graduation.

I got the idea to start Amazon 16 years ago. I came across the fact that Web usage was growing at 2,300 percent per year. I'd never seen or heard of anything that grew that fast, and the idea of building an online bookstore with millions of titles -- something that simply couldn't exist in the physical world -- was very exciting to me. I had just turned 30 years old, and I'd been married for a year. I told my wife MacKenzie that I wanted to quit my job and go do this crazy thing that probably wouldn't work since most startups don't, and I wasn't sure what would happen after that. MacKenzie (also a Princeton grad and sitting here in the second row) told me I should go for it. As a young boy, I'd been a garage inventor. I'd invented an automatic gate closer out of cement-filled tires, a solar cooker that didn't work very well out of an umbrella and tinfoil, baking-pan alarms to entrap my siblings. I'd always wanted to be an inventor, and she wanted me to follow my passion.
The students who graduate in December are covered by the graduate insurance until January 14, 2011. These changes must be done *NO LATER THAN Thursday, January 7, 2011*. Once a student has graduated, they are no longer eligible for the Graduate Student Health Insurance. Hill, Chesson, & Woody will notify each student by letter informing him/her of this and will give him/her the opportunity to extend the insurance coverage from his/her personal funds.
The 150 percent graduation rate was twice as high at private nonprofit and private for-profit 2-year institutions (60 percent each) than it was at public 2-year institutions (24 percent). The 150 percent graduation rate in 2016 for first-time, full-time students at public 2-year institutions was highest for Asian students (32 percent) and lowest for Black students (13 percent). At private nonprofit 2-year institutions, the 150 percent graduation rate was highest for Asian students (75 percent) and lowest for Black students (50 percent). At private for-profit 2-year institutions, the 150 percent graduation rate was highest for Asian and Pacific Islander students (69 percent each) and lowest for Black students (48 percent).

She recently returned to Lakeland to speak as part of the annual Business Colloquium, an event that allows successful Lakeland grads to share their stories with current and prospective Lakeland students.
The report, "The Dropout/Graduation Crisis among American Indians and Alaska Native Students: Failure to Respond Places the Future of Native People At Risk," reveals drastic disparities in graduation rates between American Indian and Alaska Native students and non-American Indian and Alaska Native students. It includes the most recent graduation statistics as well as a discussion of challenges and possibilities specific to the education of American Indian and Alaska Native students in the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming.
Unfortunately, there has been a lack of published studies and other data focused on the educational conditions and subsequent academic outcomes for Native students. According to Susan C. Faircloth, co-author of the report and associate professor ofeducation at Penn State, "American Indian and Alaska Native students continue to graduate at alarmingly low rates across the nation. With the exception of Arizona, California, Montana and Oklahoma, on average, less than 50% of Native students in the states included in this study graduate each year. Failure to respond to this crisis will have devastating effects on the educational, economic, health and social well-being of Native peoples and communities."
Overall non-Native student graduation rates in the 12 states included in this study ranged from 54.1% to 79.2%, with an average of 71.4%. In contrast, graduation rates for American Indian and Alaska Native students ranged from 30.4% to 63.8%, with an average of 46.6%. The graduation rates for all American Indian and Alaska Native students were lower than the overall state rates, and with the exception of Oklahoma and New Mexico, the degree of disparity was approximately 17 percentage points or more. 041b061a72
