January Research Training Workshop - Last Call
PRISM is making its final selections and preparing the invitations for the January Research Training Workshop, which will run on January 20, 21, and 22 from about 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. By now, you should have met with either Ed or Fran officially about your interest in being considered and included. If you are not sure if a spot is being held for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Invitations will be officially sent out by email in early January once fall grades have been checked. If you expect to be included in the training, you should start thinking about which mentor(s) you would like to approach about getting involved in research. The Chronicle

**At this point, the spots for JJC students have been filled. However, we almost always get cancellations, so please continue to RSVP to email@example.com
if interested and your name will be placed on a waiting list. Additionally, if the interest is there, we may schedule another visit for spring or summer.
Consider Applying to Be an MSRC Tutor - Jan 8 Deadline
PRISM students often make ideal Math and Science Resource Center (MSRC) tutors. Many of you have excelled in core science and math courses, which are the subjects in greatest demand. Additionally, your ability to work as a team in your lab and communicate about scientific concepts may help others! MSRC tutors are paid positions and can be the ideal way to fit in an extra “job” without compromising the amount of time spent in your research lab.
