Info Session for the 2018/2019 Student Innovation Ambassadors

Last year saw the successful launch of the Student Innovation Ambassadors program at UC San Diego where 28 of our talented students from every part of campus came together each month throughout the academic year to provide valuable insight and strategic feedback on the needs and structure of the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem at UC San Diego.

On the advisement of the Student Innovation Ambassadors, we launched the Converge Incubator. Summer 2018 was the pilot program where we dedicated $30k in funding run an 8-week, curriculum-based incubator where students received a stipend to participate and focused on building their entrepreneurial ideas.

We are excited to continue the momentum and will be hosting an Info Session for the 2018/19 Student Innovation Ambassadors on Nov. 1, 7-9pm in The Basement (Mandeville Center, B202).

2018 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium – Rice University – Sat, 10/6/18

Please see message below from Jennifer Hunter from Rice University regarding the 2018 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium:

I am writing to let you know that Rice will host the 10th annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS)! Undergrads conducting research in engineering and natural science fields are invited to apply to GCURS, which will be Saturday, October 6, 2018, on the Rice campus. We would love to host students from UCSD!

We’re not your usual poster session. In fact, no posters are allowed at GCURS! GCURS provides undergraduate researchers the opportunity to present original research discoveries to scholars from around the world. Participants give 12-to-15-minute individual presentations which include a question-and-answer period. Following the presentations, faculty mentors provide feedback to each student. Past participants have shared that GCURS helps to foster interdisciplinary, intercollegiate fellowship.

For a full list of participating divisions, details on how to apply, and more, students may visit gcurs.rice.eduHere is student perspective on the GCURS experience, and a flyer can be found here. Please feel free to share this invitation with students and advisers. Advisers are welcome to join their students at symposium as mentors.

The application deadline is September 12. Limited accommodations and travel awards for those outside the Houston area are available to accepted participants. In addition, students are encouraged to explore funding opportunities from their home institution.

Best regards,

Jennifer K. Hunter
