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.

Cybersecurity Talent Initiative

Due: November 13, 2020

In 2020, there will be more than 507,000 unfilled U.S. cybersecurity jobs. At the Partnership for Public Service, we’re trying to reduce that gap.

Today, we announced the inaugural class of the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative™ – a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership aimed at recruiting and training a world-class cybersecurity workforce.

The first class of future cybersecurity leaders brings a diverse set of academic and professional experience to the federal government. These recent college graduates will each serve a two-year placement at one of six federal agencies before being invited to apply for positions with one of the initiative’s corporate partners, including Mastercard, Microsoft and Workday. Once hired, each will receive up to $75,000 in student loan assistance.

As the initiative’s first participants begin their federal agency work, applications to join the next cohort are now open.

If you are a student who is graduating with an undergraduate or advanced degree in cybersecurity or a cybersecurity-related field such as computer science, information technology or engineering between September 2020 and June 2021, please consider learning more about the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative and how you can apply for this cross-sector opportunity to develop into a future cybersecurity leader.

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation was established by Congress in 1986 to serve as a living memorial to honor the lifetime work of Senator Barry Goldwater. By providing scholarships to college sophomores and juniors who intend to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, mathematics and engineering, the Goldwater Foundation is helping ensure that the U.S. is producing the number of highly-qualified professionals the Nation needs in these critical fields. Over its 30-year history, Goldwater Scholarships have been awarded to thousands of undergraduates, many of whom have gone on to win other prestigious awards like the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship, Churchill Scholarship and the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship that support our Scholars’ graduate school work. Today, Goldwater alumni can be found conducting research that is helping defend the Nation, finding cures for catastrophic diseases and teaching future generations of scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Come learn more about the Goldwater application process on Tues, Oct 6 at 4-5pm ET. Session will provide a quick overview of fellowships and nomination process. Session will be recorded. Register to participate.
