Subject: 18th Annual Harvard HEAS Conference—Call For Papers
To Whom It May Concern:
The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) invites currently enrolled graduate students working across all disciplines to submit papers for its annual conference. This three-day conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for scholars from institutions around the world to share ideas and research with their peers. Participants gain invaluable experience presenting their work for discussion with other graduate students and Harvard faculty.
This year’s conference is titled “Asia in Transition” and will be held on February 20th, 21st, and 22nd, 2015.
The HEAS Conference Board invites papers that examine Asia as a region in flux. We seek to highlight the ever-changing nature of spaces in Asia, whether historical or contemporary. What provides the impetus for change and what are its results? Conversely, why do transitions not occur? Preference will be given to papers which engage with the conference theme.
Interested parties can apply via the conference website:http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/heasconference/submissions. The application entails entering basic personal information, a 100-word bio, and 300-word abstract. Applications are due on Sunday, November 30th, 2014.
Questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, we ask that you circulate this message to interested parties within your department and/or institution.

Subject: 2015 Pickering Graduate Foreign Affairs Fellowship
Please be advised that applications have opened for Thomas R. Pickering and Charles B. Rangel Graduate Fellowships. Pickering & Rangel Fellowships are excellent programs, provide generous support to graduate students, and are among the very best ways available to help someone be highly competitive for entry into the U.S. Foreign Service. Application and recommendation deadlines for both programs are in January.
Immediately below please find hotlinks to the sites for the two programs.
Attached below please find a flyer on the Pickering program, and attached above a flyer on the Rangel program.
Please note that for the 2015 cycle, U.S. Department of State graduate scholarships will be offered ONLY via the Pickering and Rangel programs.
That information has yet to be updated on the Woodrow Wilson website.

Attention Graduate Students –
I am currently working with a group of our fellow Social Work grad students to discover what types of sexual / reproductive health information and services UT students have access to. Some background information: A very large grant awarded to a local group, will go towards providing a large number of health services to young adults in Travis County. Before we can determine where exactly this money should go, we need input from the UT Austin community.
We have a very quick survey that will directly benefit the community to more easily access the health resources they deserve. If you could take 3 minutes to fill out the below survey, we would really appreciate it!
Again – thank you so much and have a great week!
