Deadline extended for CALS Graduate Fellowships (please alert potential applicants)

The deadlines for applications for a number of CALS 2009-2010 Fellowships have changed. In the past, several of the opportunities were announced mid-Spring, but awards were often not known until late-Spring/early-Summer. These opportunities were announced in November with a December 5, 2008, application deadline, with the intent that awards would be made before the end of December 2008. Unfortunately, no applications were received. Therefore, the deadline is being extended to JANUARY 30, 2009. Information about these opportunities with a link to the full announcement, application criteria, and cover page follow. Please get the word out and share this information widely with faculty, staff, and students.
