Did binge-re-watching "The Walking Dead" get you thinking about what you’d do if the streets were filled with flesh-eating zombies? Maybe you've envisioned your own post-apocalyptic world overrun with the living dead, forcing you to come up with a zombie survival plan — and quick!

Hone your survival tactics and imagine what your school or college campus might be like in a zombie apocalypse. Our Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship committee wants to know your plan to avoid the zombies, where you’d hide, and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive.

We're giving one successful survivor $2,000 towards his or her college education. Do you think you have what it takes to make the cut?

 

Applicants must:

  • Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
  • Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
  • Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2023) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education

Award Amount: $2,000

 

Submit an online written response to the question:
"Imagine that your high school or college has been overrun with zombies. Your math professor, the cafeteria ladies, and even your best friend have all joined the walking dead. Flesh out a plan to avoid the zombies, including where you’d hide and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive." (250 words or less)

 

Deadline for application: October 31, 2017

 

The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around January 31, 2018.

CONFERENCE DATES AND LOCATION:

DATE: March 22-25, 2018

LOCATION: Sacramento, CA

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 25, 2017

 

BACKGROUND:

The annual Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project (APYLP) conference provides a select group of 50 Asian and Pacific Islander seniors and juniors from public, private and charter high schools throughout California with a unique opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the legislative process, community leadership, and political activism. During the four-day, three-night conference, students will participate in a Mock Legislature at the State Capitol that includes the election of peer legislative leaders, lively debate of current issues through the introduction of legislation, and the lobbying of bills during the committee hearings and the Senate floor session. Additionally, small group workshops facilitated by Asian Pacific legislative staff, community activists, and business leaders will assist students in developing their leadership and public speaking skills, enhance their cultural awareness and identity, and explore the richness and diversity of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in California. 

 

WHO SHOULD APPLY: California junior or senior high school Asian and Pacific Islander youth who have some leadership experience and especially from students who show leadership potential, but whose participation in programs such as APYLP may have been hindered in the past by economic, geographic, language, or other factors. The conference program is designed specifically for Asian and Pacific Islander youth to learn more about themselves, issues of importance to their communities, and how to empower their leadership potential through the political process, public service and community service.

  • Have working knowledge of Python or Java
  • Be able to commit to 20 hours per week over the summer

Clinical Neuroscience Immersion Experience (CNI-X) at Stanford University

The Clinical Neuroscience Immersion Experience (CNI-X) 2016 at Stanford University is an intensive, week-long, summer program generally following junior year in high school.  Interns are introduced to the amazing breadth of research found in the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  Packed back-to-back are sessions and lab trips seeing how creativity is visualized with brain waves, miniature human brains are grown in dishes, apps are used to treat eating disorders, sleep is studied in a laboratory, exercise impacts well-being, and much more.

Interactive seminars with more than 25 Stanford faculty members introduce the students to the principles of neuroscience, neuropsychiatric diagnosis, neuropsychological testing, and psychiatric epidemiology.  An adaptive and agile mind is encouraged as one session plumbs the intricacies of neuroscience, while the next involves diagnosis of a neuropsychiatric syndrome, and then the following inspires one to find "flow" in one's life.  Much of the material is clearly at a collegiate or higher level.

Self-reflection and self-directed learning are emphasized with independent inquiry assignments asking for students to write about their learning objectives and career goals and to draft a curriculum vitae. Each student creates a project, often in a team, to self-express some lesson taken from the immersion that is verbally presented at a final capstone session for themselves and their families.

Students will learn and talk about a wide range of topics, some fascinating, some exciting, and some quite serious.  Applicants should be aware that sensitive topics in psychiatry may arise, including but not limited to suicide, psychosis, addiction, child abuse, sexual assault, violence, and mental disorders, and should not apply if this will be problematic for them.

The experience is fast paced, intense, challenging, creative, and bonding for the students.  Crucial to the immersion is the intelligence, creativity, and curiosity of the interns themselves.  They all chose this intensive experience in clinical neuroscience, but their career aspirations are diverse, including law, sociology, medicine, psychology, engineering, business, and fine arts.  In summary, one intern said, "It was so informative and educational! I was surprised at how much we had access to...and how encouraging [the professors] were. It was my privilege to meet them and they treated me with so much respect and understanding."

 

Application Process

Now accepting applications for Summer 2017!

We will be offering 2 sessions this summer:

Session 1: June 19 – June 23, 2017

Session 2: June 26 – June 30, 2017

Students will learn and talk about a wide range of topics, some fascinating, some exciting, and some quite serious.  Applicants should be aware that sensitive topics in psychiatry may arise, including but not limited to suicide, psychosis, addiction, child abuse, sexual assault, violence, and mental disorders, and should not apply if this will be problematic for them.

NOTE: Before beginning the application, please be prepared to submit a few sentences on why you are interested in joining our program and what you hope to gain from the experience. Please limit your responses to 100 words or less.

The Mills STEM Club invites you to join the STEM Innovators in Training Event hosted at Skyline College on April 6th from 9am to 1pm. The event will include a variety of workshops geared towards fostering skills in STEM, government, and economics while being exposed to many different career paths. This is Thursday of Spring Break and will be a great opportunity for students and our school during this break.

 

The organization hosting this event, Ten80 Education, works on developing STEM curriculum for students as well as training teachers to incorporate more project-based learning in the classroom. They are offering a $5,200 sponsorship to schools who send at least 40 students to the event.

 

Our club is working to gather enough students to qualify for the sponsorship which we will share with our business and science clubs on campus as well as science and math departments at Mills, in addition to the new MakerSpace. We hope that the money will allow students and teachers to purchase resources for their activities in order to enrich the experiences of learning in STEM.

 

At the event, free t-shirts and lunch will be provided!

 

If you are interested please fill out this google form to help us keep track of how many students are attending so we can register our school.
