Mideast studies and religion offer grants
Students interested in studying or working Israel or earning an internship in social ethics or community service have a couple of ways to accomplish those goals.

The Dorot Travel Grant provides up to $1,000 of travel expenses to students who wish to study or work in Israel. The only requirement is that the applicant be enrolled in a formal program. The grants are offered by the departments of religion and Middle Eastern studies. The application deadline is March 21.

The Jack Boozer and Herman Noether Funds help undergraduate, graduate and professional students from all parts of the University pursue internships in social ethics and community service.

The funds are sponsored by the religion department and are for a maximum of $1,000. For more information, contact religion’s David Blumenthal (404-727-7545) or Bobbi Patterson (404-727-2571). The application deadline is March 21.


Online survey gauges academic integrity
President Bill Chace’s specially appointed Committee on Academic Integrity has designed a brief survey to solicit feedback from Emory undergraduates.

The survey, which is posted online, can be accessed via a temporary link on the internal homepage. It features only a few questions intended to measure general attitudes and observations about academic honesty on campus.

“The committee is trying to verify anecdotal evidence that academic integrity here is not as strong as it could be,” said Susan Frost, vice president for strategic planning.

Frost said the committee hopes 20 percent of Emory’s roughly 6,000 undergraduates will complete the survey, and she urged faculty members to inform their students about it and encourage them to participate.
