Robert L. Bartley Fellowship Program
January

http://www.dowjones.com/djcom/careers/bartley-interns.asp

Throughout his 30 years as The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Page Editor, Bob Bartley inspired principled and original thinking that changed and shaped the society in which we all live. He also devoted attention to teaching and motivating talented young people, many of whom have gone on to careers in journalism at the Journal and elsewhere. The Bartley fellowships are consistent with that legacy.

Bob Bartley achieved many honors during his long tenure here including a Pulitzer Prize and, shortly before his death in December 2003, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In awarding that medal, President Bush cited Bob as "one of the most influential journalists in American history." The Robert L. Bartley fellowships will help to perpetuate not just Bob's memory but above all the principles and priorities to which he devoted his distinguished career.


Eligibility and Requirements

The fellowships, consisting of paid internships of one to six months, will be provided to young thinkers and writers whose views are broadly consistent with Bob Bartley's philosophy and who aspire to careers in journalism. Applicants should be beginning journalists, upperclassmen or graduate students with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere. It is essential that they be familiar with, and interested in, the ideas for which the Journal editorial page stands. As many as five fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior members of our editorial board. Fellows will work as writers and editors on the Journal's opinion pages—editorial, op-ed, Leisure & Arts—in the U.S., Europe or Asia.


Responsibilities

Bartley Fellows will assist in researching and writing editorials, editing op-ed articles, editing Leisure & Arts page features, and editing letters to the editor for the Journal and our Web site, OpinionJournal.com.


When does the program start?

Start and finish dates are flexible, though we anticipate that most Fellows will work during the summer months. The fellowship usually begins in June and runs through the end of August, although some run up to six months.

SURF students work with leading scientists in a broad range of areas including biochemistry; structural biology and chemistry; molecular, cell and developmental biology; immunology; virology and microbiology; neuroscience; physics; and mathematical biology.

College sophomores and juniors are eligible to spend 10 weeks during the summer in a Rockefeller University laboratory. The program begins in early June and ends in mid-August.

Each year, students are chosen from a wide variety of applicants with diverse scientific backgrounds and training. Annually, more than 500 students apply for admission into the SURF Program and approximately 15 are accepted. In order to fully experience the world of scientific research, SURF students are required to present and discuss scientific publications at weekly Journal Club meetings. This exposure allows participants to familiarize themselves with speaking to a scientific audience. SURF students also attend a special lecture series where Rockefeller faculty discuss their research and the evolution of their scientific interests. At the end of the program, SURF students will present their research results to fellow students and mentors at a poster session.

SURF students receive a stipend of $3,000.00.

Free housing will be provided for students who cannot commute.

Campus facilities include a tennis court, a recently renovated gym and adjacent east west esplanade for jogging, running, walking, or roller blading. SURF students are encouraged to attend social and cultural events occurring both on and off campus.

The Rockefeller University's campus, located on New York City's Upper East Side, is set among beautifully kept gardens and trees on a 15-acre campus overlooking the East River. A diversity of restaurants, shops and entertainment adds to this culturally enriched area of Manhattan. The rest of New York City is conveniently accessible by train, bus or taxicab.

February

http://weill.cornell.edu/education/programs/tra_sum_res.html

The Travelers Summer Research Fellowship Program is designed to give 25 premedical students deeper insights into the field of medicine, including issues that greatly affect the health of traditionally underserved groups. Through the experiences of laboratory or clinical research at Sanford I. Weill Medical College of Cornell University, the student learns how one pursues a specific research problem under the supervision of a faculty member, thus providing an early education into basic research techniques that could be applicable to any area of medicine.

A lecture series explores topics in cardiovascular physiology, exposing the students to basic science concepts that are relevant to a more specific understanding of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, both of which are major problems in minority communities. The summer fellows attend a series of talks by minority physicians about various medical specialties, addressing issues of concern in these physician's daily work plus views of the bigger picture in health care to minority communities. Rounds in the hospital with advanced year students provide further exposure to the clinical facets of medicine. Students in the summer program receive counseling on financial planning for medical school and how to examine the financial aid package.

Students receive a $140-a-week cost-of-living allowance and are housed rent - free in the dormitory for medical students, but are required to pay for their meals and other living expenses. Travel expenses are paid for students that live some distance from New York.
