Our primary mission is to help students achieve successful careers in science while promoting diversity, equity, and inclusivity at UVM and the wider Burlington community.
Since applying to graduate school can be a challenging and overwhelming task, we have organized a group of graduate student panelists to answer questions and give real advice to prospective students. This event is open to anyone applying to graduate school or interested in learning more about the process.
The first event will mostly be a Question & Answer format with a panel of five current UVM and Dartmouth graduate students from a diverse set of backgrounds and departments at various stages in their progression through grad school. The event will be held virtually on zoom on Thursday, October 29th from 5 – 6pm.
Application Deadline: Friday, December 4, 2020, at midnight PST / 3am EST.
Since 2008, Lime Connect has been proud to partner with Google to help future innovators who happen to have disabilities make the most of their talents by providing scholarships and networking retreats.
The 2021 Google Lime Scholarship application is now open for current students with disabilities who are pursuing Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related degrees. Recipients will receive a scholarship ($10,000 USD for those studying in the US and $5,000 USD for those studying in Canada) for the 2021-2022 academic year. Scholars will also be invited to attend a virtual “Google Lime Scholars” gathering in Summer 2021 and be considered for internship opportunities with Google.
|* A person with a disability is defined as someone who has, or considers themselves to have, a long-term or recurring issue that impacts one or more activities that others may consider to be a daily function. This definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. We know that 90% of disabilities on campus (and 70% of disabilities among the general population) are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to join The Lime Network and take full advantage of the benefits it offers.|
Thanks to our amazing Peer Career Advisors and Peer Engagement Fellows, we are able to offer a full schedule of virtual Quick Questions hours this semester!
Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays – 12:00-4:00 p.m. ET and 7:00-9:00 p.m. ET Thursdays & Fridays – 1:00-4:00 p.m. ET.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was jointly awarded on Wednesday to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna for their 2012 work on Crispr-Cas9, a method to edit DNA. The announcement marks the first time the award has gone to two women.
“This year’s prize is about rewriting the code of life,” Goran K. Hansson, the secretary-general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, said as he announced the names of the laureates.
Dr. Charpentier and Dr. Doudna, only the sixth and seventh women in history to win a chemistry prize, did much of the pioneering work to turn molecules made by microbes into a tool for customizing genes — whether in microbes, plants, animals or even humans.
“I’m over the moon, I’m in shock,” Dr. Doudna, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, said at a news conference on Wednesday.
It has been only eight years since Dr. Doudna and Dr. Charpentier — now the director of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin — co-authored their first paper demonstrating the power of Crispr-Cas9. Since then, the technology has exploded. Doctors are testing it as a cure for genetic disorders such as sickle cell disease and hereditary blindness. Plant scientists are using it to create new crops. Some researchers are even trying to use Crispr to bring species back from extinction.
Along with these high-profile experiments, other scientists are using Crispr to ask fundamental questions about life, such as which genes are essential to a cell’s survival. Crispr “solves problems in every field of biology,” said Angela Zhou, an information scientist at CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society.
“This technology has utterly transformed the way we do research in basic science,” said Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. “I am thrilled to see Crispr-Cas getting the recognition we have all been waiting for, and seeing two women being recognized as Nobel Laureates.”

Student Stories from Summer Internships: A Center for Careers and Internships Panel Discussion
Friday, October 9, 2:00-3:00 pm
At Middlebury, students don’t just learn how to engage the world—they go out and do it. Even in the midst of a pandemic, our resilient and innovative students participated in meaningful internships (many of them remote) this summer. They gained valuable experience, contributed to research on Covid-19, cancer and climate change, taught children, brought the arts online, and used language, writing, research, and analytical skills acquired at Middlebury to benefit major NGOs, corporations, non-profits, and campaigns.
Join a live Zoom panel discussion hosted by the Center for Careers and Internships (CCI) to hear directly from Middlebury students about how transformative internship experiences can be and what advice they offer to help students find and secure the right internship for their interests. CCI staff will briefly describe our internship programs and be available to answer your questions.
