Hello <<First Name>>!

Happy New Year! We hope your spring semester is going well so far. We are in the process of revamping our newsletter (again!), and in the meantime we have a new section to point out: the Student Section! Every newsletter will include articles and/or opportunities for students, from undergraduates to PhD students. At the top of the newsletter we'll include menu links so you can skip down to see only that section if you wish. As always, we welcome your feedback!

2019 New Mexico Journal of Science Now Available

The 2018 New Mexico Journal of Science, published by the New Mexico Academy of Science (NMAS), is now available for public viewing for free! This year's Journal includes papers written by two high school students and one middle school student as part of a statewide scientific paper competition, and abstracts from participants in the 2018 NMAS Research Symposium. All presenters and poster session participants are included in the Journal. New Mexico EPSCoR is proud to be a sponsor of the Symposium, and we are thrilled to have so many project participants and students published in the Journal.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) at the University of Illinois

INCLUSION is an opportunity for 10 undergraduate students from underrepresented communities and Minority Serving Institutions to work in pairs with pairs of mentors on interdisciplinary socially-impactful INCLUSION research projects that develop and use open source software (OSS).

Discoveries of the Dawn Mission to Vesta and Ceres

NASA's Dawn Mission was the first to arrive at the asteroid belt and the first to orbit an object in the main belt. The mission has returned amazing data that has changed our understanding of the protoplanet Vesta and the dwarf planet Ceres. This is a unique opportunity to hear from Dawn’s Principal Investigator, Dr. Raymond. Join her for a discussion of the science data received, including spectacular NEW views of Ceres obtained recently during Dawn's final low-altitude orbit. The NM Museum of Natural History & Science has the only summary exhibit of the Dawn Mission in existence. After the lecture, attendees will be able to visit the exhibit with Dr. Raymond and other Dawn Science Team members. Click here for more information and to buy tickets!

Research Spotlight Forums

A new series of forums to provide an overview of research and needs on specific topics, to foster collaboration between Sandia National Laboratories and New Mexico’s research universities. These events are open to all interested Sandia staff, along with school faculty and students. 


MAY 01
NSF Non-Academic Research Internships for Graduate Students

a supplemental funding opportunity is available in fiscal years FY 2019 and FY 2020 to provide support for non-academic research internships for graduate students to support career opportunities in any sector of the U.S. economy. 




The high temperature in Chicago yesterday was -14º and with the wind chill, -30º!
That's record-breaking cold most New Mexicans can't imagine, especially with winter temperatures like the high in Las Cruces, topping 60º on Wednesday!
