Women in Technology Program at MIT
Can you think of any young girls that might be interested in this program?
The Women's Technology Program at MIT is a 4-week summer residence program to introduce high school girls to electrical engineering and computer science. If you know a girl who is currently a high school junior with demonstrated math and science ability and an interest in finding out about EECS, please encourage her to visit our website for more information and for an application form (applications are due February 3, 2005): http://wtp.m! it.edu
Our classes are taught in a supportive environment by a staff of women MIT PhD candidates and undergraduates. The full-time academic program includes hands-on experiments and team-based projects in computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics.
Our goals are to: increase girls' interest and confidence in pursuing computer science and engineering and make them aware of their potential for success in these fields. Participants are selected from a nationwide applicant pool of girls who attend the program in the summer between their junior and senior year in high school. No prior experience in computer programming, physics, or electrical engineering is expected, but applicants typically have strong academic records, especially in math and science.
Thank you for your help in communicating information about this opportunity to girls across the country! Cynthia Skier, Director Women's Technology Program (WTP) wtp.mit.ed u MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
HARVARD 'S TUITION ANNOUNCEMENT
Harvard is offering free tuition for students that have a family income
below $40,000. If you are a mentor or have nieces and nephews who might
be interested, please give them this information. If you know
anyone/family earning less than $40K with a brilliant child near ready
for college, please pass this along.
Harvard's Tuition Announcement Highlights Failure of Prestigious
Universities to Enroll Low-Income Students March 1, 2004, Harvard
University announced over the weekend that from now on undergraduate
students from low-income families will pay no tuition. In making the
announcement, Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers said, "When only
10 percent of the students in Elite higher education come from families
in lower half the income distribution, we are not ! doing enough. We are
not doing enough in br! inging elite higher education to the lower half
of the income distr ibution."
If you know of a family earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor
student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to
pay the tuition. The prestigious university recently announced that from
now on undergraduate students from low-income families can go to Harvard
for free...no tuition and no student loans! To find out more about
Harvard offering free tuition for families making less than $40,000 a
year visit Harvard's financial aid web site at:
http://adm-is.fas.harvard.edu/FAO/index.htm or call the school's
financial aid office at (617) 495- 1581.
This initiative puts severe pressure on other well-endowed colleges and
universities to adopt similar measures. Some commentators believe that
Harvard's announcement was made in response to Princeton Univer! sity's
decision six years ago to eliminate all tuition charges for fam ilies
earning less than $40,000 (adjusted annually to take inflation into
account) and its subsequent decision three years later to substitute all
student loans with outright grants. The Harvard announcement indicates
that the Princeton plan has had some success in drawing to Princeton
some of the high-achieving, low-income students who typically went to
Harvard each year.
The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education gathers figures from the U.S.
Department of Education relating to the percentage of students at the
nation's leading colleges and universities who receive federal financial
assistance under the Pell Grant program for low-income students. These
figures provide a good measure of the institution's Relative success in
enrolling students from the bottom economic sector of the nation' s
