Application & deadlines
The fall deadline for GO! and Fritz Scholarship applications is Thursday, November 7 at 5pm. The application is available online starting October 1 at http://goglobal.uw.edu/apply.php. It requires an 800-word essay (see http://goglobal.uw.edu/faqs.php) but no letters of recommendation. Students studying abroad in winter or spring 2014 should apply at this deadline; those studying abroad in summer, early fall, or fall 2014 will apply at our late April 2014 deadline. We expect to be able to notify November applicants about whether they have been selected to receive a scholarship by early December. You can find more information at our website, http://www.goglobal.washington.edu/index.php and at facebook.com/UWGlobalOpportunities
Information sessions & events
We’re offering 2 information sessions this fall:
- Tuesday, October 15 from 3:30 – 4:30pm in MGH171
- Wednesday, October 30 from 3:30 – 4:30pm in MGH171
We’ll discuss the nuts and bolts of the application and discuss tips for crafting a competitive personal statement. Students may email me at email@example.com to schedule an advising appointment if they can’t attend an information session.
Students, staff, and faculty are invited to the Study Abroad Meet & Greet on Wednesday, October 30 from 4:30 – 5:30pm in MGH171. GO! and Fritz Scholars just back from their studies abroad will be there to share stories and answer questions. Delicious international snacks will be served!
Fritz Scholarship: 1) UW undergraduate, 2) Declared social sciences or humanities major by the application deadline (see http://goglobal.uw.edu/faqs.php for a list), 3) at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA
GO! Scholarship: 1) UW undergraduate, 2) Resident of Washington state, 3) Eligible for Pell Grants or Husky Promise for the academic year in which the application deadline falls
**Please note a slight change in the GO! eligibility requirements. Previously, students were required to be eligible for Pell Grants or Husky Promise for the quarter of their study abroad. This change will not impact most applicants, but will remove uncertainty about eligibility for students who apply for the GO! in spring of one academic year for funding to study abroad in the following academic year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this change.

Kane Hall 220
Reception to follow
Title: Math at top speed: exploring and breaking myths
in the drag racing folklore
Speaker: Richard Tapia, Rice University
In this talk the speaker will identify elementary mathematical frameworks for the study of old and new drag racing beliefs. In this manner some myths are validated, while others are destroyed. The first part of the talk will be a historical account of the development of drag racing and will include several lively videos and pictures depicting the speaker’s involvement in the early days of the sport.
Richard Tapia, 2010 awardee of the National Medal of Science, the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on scientists and engineers, is a mathematician in Rice University’s Computational and Applied Mathematics Department. He holds the rank of University Professor, the university’s highest academic title awarded to only six individuals in the university’s history. Among his many other honors is election to the National Academy of Engineering, the first Hispanic to receive this honor, and honorary doctorates from Carnegie Mellon University, Colorado School of Mines, University of Nevada, and Claremont Graduate University. Two professional conferences have been named in his honor: the Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference and the Blackwell-Tapia Mathematics Conference. Tapia served on the National Science Board from 1996-2002. Because of his leadership Rice University is recognized as a national leader in the preparation of women and underrepresented minority doctoral degree recipients in science, engineering, and mathematics.
