Upcoming Events & Opportunities: 

Naval Horizons

A new opportunity is on the horizon for STEM college students!  The Naval Horizons challenge is designed to introduce STEM college students to cutting-edge science and technology topics that impact the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Students are invited to watch the video series, select one topic and share their ideas on the current state of the art and a futurist vision of the Navy and/or Marine Corps in the year 2040.  They will also have the option to submit a  statement of interest that will be used to connect students with Department of Navy scientists and engineers to learn more. Each application will be reviewed to ensure that the responses provided are technically sufficient.  Submissions will be evaluated on a rolling basis and the first 3,000 submissions to meet the evaluation criteria will be awarded a $200 stipend.

Eligible students can visit the Naval Horizons website to learn more. 

The challenge closes on January 15, 2021, at 12 PM EST.

    Career Opportunitites 

    This job gives recent graduates the opportunity to work with great people, gain real skills, and start making a difference on important issues right away! 
    Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and a strategic plan to get things done. For almost 50 years the Student PIRGs have gotten results, by recruiting, training and working alongside student activists on campaigns that make a difference.
    The Student PIRGs set out to increase youth voter turnout this Election cycle and organized youth mobilization campaigns in states across the country. Our efforts recruited more than 2,000 student leaders that helped make over 360,000 GOTV contacts to make sure students were heard on Election Day.The numbers are still coming in, but we know lots of young people have turned out! Our chapters on campuses across the country  will now continue to provide the resources students need to tackle climate change, protect public health, revitalize our democracy, feed the hungry and more.
