CIA Simulation/Recruitment: What? Students interested in working with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA): Have you ever wondered what intelligence analysts do? Want to learn more about working for the CIA? Join us for a simulation of a technical security crisis, based on true events. You will play the role of an intelligence analyst. Intelligence analysts at the CIA gather information from a wide variety of sources and draw on their own personal expertise and that of their colleagues. Several pieces of intelligence have come in about a strange new facility. You and your teammates will be charged with determining what is the purpose of the facility and determining its impact. Your team must quickly evaluate the situation, assess the impact to the United States, and advise the President on possible outcomes. Please Note: US Citizenship and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above are required to participate – space is limited to 30 participants. Dinner will be provided!
When? Come find out on Thursday, 15 November from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Where? TBD
Contact: If interested, please send an email to WINPACsimulation@gmail.com by Monday, 12 November, and explain in one paragraph why you are interested in learning more about a career as a CIA analyst. You may also attach a resume.

NE fellowships and scholarships

Monday, October 15th, 2012

If you have a pretty good GPA, you should consider applying for some scholarships or fellowships.

The scholarships will usually be one-time cash awards of several thousand dollars and are pretty easy to apply for. I’ve heard from those who administer these awards that they have received relatively small numbers of applicants recently, so the odds for those who do apply are pretty good. Some scholarships that might be of interest to nuclear engineers are:

Dept of Defense: http://smart.asee.org/

ANS: http://www.new.ans.org/honors/scholarships/

DOE NEUP (these have not yet been announced): https://inlportal.inl.gov/portal/server.pt/community/neup_home/600/scholarship

Also, if you are going to attend graduate school next year, you should be looking into applying for fellowships (soon!). These usually provide full tuition plus a monthly stipend and last for a few years. Some of interest include:

DOE NEUP (not yet announced): https://inlportal.inl.gov/portal/server.pt/community/neup_home/600/fellowships
