Academic Achievement Award applications due April 2, 2007

Thinking about going back to school, full-time? Want to hang with the coolest professors at Emporia State? Looking to live the leisure life of a campus-based college student?
How would you like a full-time graduate assistantship, here on the beautiful ESU campus? Plus, an additional stipend? If so, read on!

Last year, Sandra Valenti was our first-ever IDT student to be awarded the prestigious Academic Achievement Award! You could be next! If you think you qualify and would be willing to be on-campus next year, download the following AAA application form and send it to me by April 2, 2007.

The AAA assistantship would involve overseeing the daily operations and maintenance of our IDT PC and Mac computer labs, in addition to assisting IDT professors with teaching our many on-campus pre-service instructional technology courses. The AAA awarded graduate assistantship comes with a tuition waiver and pays a whopping $6,752 for the academic year (working 20 hours per week)! Wait, that's not all! You also get an additional stipend on top of all of this!

The application is pretty simple:
A typed statement not to exceed one page on specific research interests and/or career goals. (I can work with you on this, if needed)
You already have transcripts on file with us, so you don't have to worry about those.
You need 3 recommendations, so you might have to get one more, in addition to what you sent with your IDT application.

Come on, you know you want to do it! Re-live those animal house experiences from your undergraduate days (BYOT - bring your own toga)!
Contact Dr. Childress, if interested!

More about Academic Achievement Awards:

Academic Achievement Awards (AAA) are awarded annually for a total of ten awards. AAA's are special graduate assistantships that are available on a competitive basis to graduate students with outstanding academic records. Recipients of the AAA are automatically awarded a full-time assistantship with an additional stipend. Applications must be nominated and ranked by their major department. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, application letter, recommendations, and department rankings.
