The Zoom Join link is: https://SDSU.zoom.us/j/ 794854217 (starting at 11:30 am).
Summer Sprint Teams will participate in CSU I-Corps activities in two phases: 1) a 5-day, in-person, full-time workshop in San Diego July 15-20, 2018, and 2) an independent, virtual phase July 21 - 31, 2018.
Team applications are due Monday, May 7, 2018 (5 pm pacific time).
Teams must have biotechnology-focused product, service or process ideas based on a CSU-based research project. CSU I-Corps Teams can include CSU students, staff and/or faculty.
CSU I-Corps will cover participants' travel to and from San Diego, as well as lodging and meals at San Diego State University during the Summer Sprint. Teams will also win $1,000 microgrants to help advance their research-based ideas. Follow-on funding from the National Science Foundation is available.

The CSU Council on Ocean Affairs, Science, and Technology is pleased to announce our Summer 2018 Internship Opportunities: https://www2.calstate.edu/impact-of-the-csu/research/coast/funding/Pages/Summer-2018-Announcement-and-Application.aspx.
We have 15 internship positions open this summer ranging from working with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) to culturing of abalone to helping a national marine sanctuary explore connections to National Forests. We have new hosts who have joined the program in addition to returning hosts who have offered incredibly rewarding internships in previous years. Students from a broad diversity of backgrounds, such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Geology, Resource Management and Policy, and more, are encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is Monday, March 5, 2018, 5:00 pm PST. Please read the General Eligibility Requirements and Application Materials and Procedures sections carefully so you understand each section thoroughly.
You can read more about the internship program and see lists of past interns and pictures of interns from previous years at https://www2.calstate.edu/impact-of-the-csu/research/coast/funding/Pages/student-funding.aspx#studentIntern.
We will host a webinar on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, from 12:00-1:00 pm where you can hear all about these internship opportunities and have the opportunity to ask questions. RSVP for the webinar here.
I would like to inform you of the City of San Diego and the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Scholarship, worth up to $2,000 for each recipient. I was hoping you could help spread the word to your students about this amazing opportunity. Not only does the recipient receive free money but we also treat them to a round of golf at a local golf course in the spring. If they do not golf, then it is fine because they will still be invited to the banquet at the golf course where they will receive their scholarship. We will invite all the engineering companies that helped fund the scholarships so that the recipients can mingle and network with them, too.
The deadline to apply for this scholarship has been extended to February 28, 2018! Take advantage of this great opportunity!
Please see the attached applications for high school and undergraduate candidates. The application may also be found posted on the American Council of Engineering Companies website.
The application for student projects is now open and the Spring Green 2018 website is live! Follow the link to learn more about the event and to access the application form: http://mwdh2o.com/DocSvcsPubs/SpringGreenExpo/GreenExpo2018/college.html. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2018 at 11:00 p.m.
Metropolitan encourages all interested students to apply. In the past, the Expo has featured projects with a sustainability component from academic disciplines including (but not limited to) art and design, chemistry, education, and engineering.
Please contact the Student Coordinator, Megan Buckley at (213) 217-5647 or firstname.lastname@example.org for all questions and inquiries.
A major barrier to getting the job you want is the software technical interview. To help students overcome this, CodePath.org has introduced a rigorous new 12-week summer course: Advanced Interview Prep. At the end of the summer, their career team will help as many students get jobs as possible. Employment isn’t guaranteed, but they're committed to helping students for as long as it takes to get their first job.
They have 100 spots open and you can apply here. Early admissions ends March 31, 2018.
Advanced Interview Prep is a 12-week course, run remotely over the summer, designed to prepare students to solve challenging algorithm problems in real interviews at top companies. The course also includes lectures, interview practice, industry mentors, and advanced info sessions from senior engineers.
CodePath.org is a non-profit funded by companies like Facebook to help improve diversity in tech by providing semester-long courses.
