We just got great news about the continuation of the Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) Fellowships for Aspiring Teachers of Color for the 2015 cycle. This will probably be the last opportunity for students to apply. The Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowships for Aspiring Teachers of Color seeks to help recruit, support, and retain individuals of color as public school teachers in the United States.

The Anacortes Salmon Derby program has scholarships and grant funding available now.
They look for undergraduates for their Continuing Educations awards, and for both graduate and undergraduate students for their grant awards.
The deadline for this year has just passed, and they did not receive a single application from the UW, so they have extended the deadline for a month.
The Program on Climate Change (PCC) is pleased to be able to offer one 9-month graduate fellowship for the 2014/2015 academic year to incoming and graduate students who have completed less than four quarters as of August 1, 2014 in the School of Environmental and Forest Resources, the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and Civil and Environmental Engineering.

FUNDED MARINE, OCEANOGRAPHIC AND ATMOSPHERIC UNDERGRADUATE INTERNSHIPS
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, to support eight internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS during fall 2014.
An REU internship at BIOS is a great way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in the marine and atmospheric sciences.
