Selected eInterns should expect to spend ten hours a week on their project from September through May. This is unpaid, volunteer work, but eInterns make connections that make a difference, gain valuable experience, and sometimes get course credit. All applicants must be U.S. citizens in student status at a university in the U.S. or abroad. VSFS is open to undergrad through PhD candidates taking classes full or part-time, in-person or on-line.
Some students elect to take a GRE subject test in preparation for graduate school. The paper based exam (available for Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Literature in English) is administered three times per academic year; in September, October, and April.
Middlebury College will be administering GRE subject tests in Twilight Hall on:
- Saturday, September 14, 2019
- Saturday, October 26, 2019
- Saturday, April 4, 2020
Seats are limited for the exam, so students are encouraged to register early through the ETS website.
Not all graduate programs require the subject test, and GREs come with an expiration date (typically 5 years), so consider meeting with a faculty or CCI advisor if you are considering taking a GRE subject test.
For additional information, please visit the GRE subject test section of the Educational Testing Service website.
Many thanks to an alum who shared this. It would be great for a recent grad!

You’re 29 years old, and you’ve just been given a job in the White House. How do you quickly figure out how the US Executive Branch behemoth actually works, so that you can have as much impact as possible – before you quit or get kicked out?
That was the challenge put in front of Tom Kalil in 1993.
He had enough success to last a full 16 years inside the Clinton and Obama administrations, working to foster the development of the internet, then nanotechnology, and then cutting-edge brain modelling, among other things.
But not everyone figures out how to move the needle. In today’s interview, Tom shares his experience with how to increase your chances of getting an influential role in government, and how to make the most of the opportunity if you get in.
He believes that Congressional gridlock leads people to greatly underestimate how much the Executive Branch can and does do on its own every day. Decisions by individuals change how billions of dollars are spent; regulations are enforced, and then suddenly they aren’t; and a single sentence in the State of the Union can get civil servants to pay attention to a topic that would otherwise go ignored.

This was shared by an alum who is helping organize. Sounds great!
