V. The Lohmann & Van Sinderen Prizes for Undergraduate Printing and Design 

The Lohmann & Van Sinderen Prizes aim to recognize and celebrate the broad range of interest in planning, craft, and invention that gives undergraduate design and printing at Yale its singular character. The judges are eager to see printed works of all kinds in order to reward skill, discipline, and imagination.  

Eligible pieces must have been planned and executed in the past academic year by a current Yale undergraduate. They may include publications and ephemera, class assignments, and self-initiated printing projects. Professional studio work will not be considered, nor will printmaking projects, per se. Entries can be made by both digital and traditional methods, although final renditions cannot be screen-based.  

For more information, including submission instructions and images of past entries, visit lohmann.yale.edu. Entries must be submitted by 1:30 pm on Friday, April 28, 2017, to Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library Special Collections.  

Prizes of up to $500 will be awarded at an informal ceremony on April 28 at 5 pm on the main level of the Haas Family Arts Library, where all entries will be on view.  

Note: All winning entries become part of the Yale Residential Colleges Student Printing Collection immediately following the awards ceremony. The Arts Library encourages all entrants to donate their submissions to help build the collection.

VIII. Yale Summer Science Research Institute

We are currently seeking a qualified candidate to coordinate the Summer Science Research Institute at Yale, an exciting science outreach internship program for local public school students. Our team is in the process of finalizing admissions decisions for the 2017 summer program, and we’re now looking for a dynamic, organized undergraduate or graduate candidate who is excited about the program’s mission - even if you’re not involved in science at Yale!

The Yale Summer Science Research Institute (SSRI) connects enthusiastic high school students from the New Haven area with scientific research labs at Yale.  We aim to provide high-quality research experiences to New Haven students to excite them about scientific investigation, enable them to explore new scientific fields, and to increase their college preparedness. In doing so, we hope to foster long-term relationships between Yale laboratories and high school students. Students come to campus for a 6-week research internship supplemented with weekly workshops, lunches with student mentors, and a day-long research symposium at the end of the program.  

The Coordinator will be in charge of program administrative responsibilities and will act as the point of contact and facilitator of program events during the 6-week period. The working hours are part-time from May until August, with flexibility in fulfilling the working hour requirements outside of when the 6-week programming is in session.

More details about the position can be found at the following link:
