**DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT**
As part of its Gueron Minority Scholars Program, MDRC will offer one doctoral fellowship in fall 2017 to a Ph.D. candidate who is pursuing independent, self-directed research on economic and social problems affecting low-income Americans. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for graduate students to gain exposure to social policy research, understand employment options beyond the academic and public sectors, and get the advice and support of MDRC's staff in completing their dissertations. The Gueron Minority Scholars program seeks to engage and encourage individuals from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the education and social policy research communities.
Dedicated to learning what works to improve the well-being of low-income families, MDRC has created this special financial assistance program for students enrolled in doctoral programs in economics, psychology, sociology, child development, child welfare, family relations, criminal justice, education, public policy, or related fields.
The fellow could work in either MDRC's Oakland, CA, or New York City offices. The fellowship is expected to begin in early fall and last for approximately two months, though there is some flexibility in the timing. The recipient will work on his or her doctoral dissertation on topics of mutual interest — and will participate in the intellectual life of MDRC by attending seminars and project meetings and by working with key MDRC research staff. Our project work is conducted in five policy areas: Family Well-Being and Child Development, K-12 Education, Postsecondary Education, Low-Wage Workers and Communities, and Youth Development, Criminal Justice, and Employment (formerly Health and Barriers to Employment). The fellow will also be expected to give a presentation of his or her research.
A stipend and office space will be provided to the fellow. Housing is not provided.
Additional details can be found at https://chm.tbe.taleo.net/
Applications are due August 31, 2017.
Please direct questions about the fellowship to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am reaching out this morning to share three wonderful paid internships that your students may be interested in. I received these three calls from Tina Parker, FAHE Research and Development Specialist (email@example.com or 859.986.2321 ext. 2108). Any questions about these opportunities should be addressed to Tina. Again, these are not funded by the Appalachian Center – these are independent internships funded by FAHE.

Dear EPE students and recent alumni,
As part of the department's periodic review process (required every 5 or so years by SACS), we are asked to include a compilation of student research-related activity for 2011-2016. Could you please send the following to Katie Cross (firstname.lastname@example.org), copied to Dr. Goldstein (email@example.com)? Alternatively, you may add the information directly to the Google Doc we are working on here: https://docs.google.com/
* Conference presentations (conference name, date, title of paper/poster,
* Publications, including articles, books, reviews, white papers/policy briefs, multimedia, etc. (full citation)
* Awards, funding and scholarships (might include for research activities, travel, academic merit, teaching-related)
* Ongoing projects and collaborations, especially with EPE faculty or related to your activities in EPE
* Significant job changes and promotions
If in doubt, please include the information.
We will begin collecting these data more systematically later this year for future use. For now, your support of EPE's effort to produce a comprehensive report is much appreciated.
All the best for a restful and joyous holiday season.
Dr. Beth Goldstein
