Take part in the Energy Mini-Grant for IAP 2014!

Are you going to be here in Boston over IAP this academic year?  Great!  There is tons of stuff to do:

Go visit Fenway Park – home of the World Series 2013 Champs Boston Red Sox!

Sample some of the fine seafood options around Boston and New England, like lobster!

Or, you can take part in the MIT Energy Initiative’s (MITEI) Energy Mini-Grant program during IAP.  The program will award three grants, $500 each, for student or staff-led energy related activities to take place during IAP 2014.

The MITEI Education Office is now seeking proposals for grants which aims to support IAP programming that engages the topic of energy, while involving members of the MIT community.

Potential examples of funded activities include: a panel on specific topics of energy research, holding a recruitment event for a student organization in the energy sphere, to designing and implementing an energy-related competition.

For more information about qualifications, requirements, and other information, contact MITEI Student Activities Coordinator Ethan Feuer at efeuer@mit.edu!

Your  proposals should be submitted by Dec. 18th, 2013, and notification of grant allocations will be announced by Dec. 23rd, 2013.

Nominate an Inspirational Teacher!

Each year, the Public Service Center, in association with Lemelson-MIT and the MIT Alumni Association, sponsor the Inspirational Teacher Award!  This award recognizes high school teachers that have had a profound effect on your path as a student, and may have been influential in your ending up here at MIT.

Take some time to nominate a high school teacher who inspired you!

Exceptional students often have an exceptional leader or teacher who helped to guide them towards an awesome achievement like being accepted to MIT.  So, please take some time out of your busy finals schedule to nominate a teacher who was your favorite from high school so that we can thank them for helping to get you here!

Don’t just reward your favorite high school teacher with an apple – reward them with a nomination for MIT’s Inspirational Teacher Award.
