News and Updates for Feb 2010
We are pleased to introduce the Academic Year Foreign Language Area Studies Fellowship (FLAS) for ALL Columbia Undergraduates.
Jordan Hirsch was selected as 1 of 5 fellows this year through an application process was judged by senior members of the Wall Street Journal editorial board.
We are very pleased to share the Columbia College Fund 57th Annual Report, online for the first time and reflecting the success of the 2008-2009 Fiscal Year. Going green allows the College to reduce waste and save costs while providing more information than would be possible in a printed publication.
The Annual Report can be found online at http://fund.college.columbia.edu/annualreport.
We are pleased to report that Shlomo Bolts, a senior Political Science and Sociology double major from Miami Beach Florida, has won the Gates Cambridge Scholarship. Shlomo plans to pursue an MPhil in Modern Society and Global Transformations at Cambridge. His areas of interest include globalization, peace studies, and denationalization.
Are you an engineering student in need of funding as you continue to pursue academic excellence? Meet with Dean Pippenger and Ms. Roach of the Fellowships Office to learn about opportunities to fund research, your education (both undergraduate and graduate), or even study abroad.
Please note that applications for the Udall Scholarship will be due into the Fellowships Office on February 8th at 5 pm.
