Latin American Scholars

The Howard College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce the launch of the Latin American Studies Scholars Program. Talented incoming freshmen will participate in courses and extra-curricular activities designed to develop expertise in the interdisciplinary field of Latin American Studies. The program will culminate in the summer after the LAS Scholar's sophomore year, when they will participate in a subsidized travel-study journey in Latin America.

Participation will enhance employment opportunities, help prepare students interested in mission service in Latin America, and provide significant advantages for those considering graduate studies or professional training. For more information, visit the LAS webpage.

The Clark Scholarship in Computational Biology

Modern exploration at the frontiers of life-science research relies heavily upon computer simulation and analysis of biological systems. Computational biology unites the fields of biology, computer science, mathematics, and information technology. The ultimate goal of this emerging discipline is the discovery of new biological insights and the creation of a global perspective from which to discover unifying principles in biology, pharmacology, and medicine. As highly visible efforts such as the human genome project have demonstrated, the importance of such approaches is certain to increase. Scholarships are available for qualified students via the Clark Scholars Program. Follow the links for a program description and an application.

Cognitive Science Scholarship

Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary course of study that merges insights from such key areas as computer science, psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience to understand issues involving cognition and behavior. A number of critical issues relate to the quest to understand and reproduce cognitive behaviors. These include exploring the brain as a computational mechanism, considering how artificially constructed systems might do what the brain does, seeking common underlying principles of intelligence, and considering the impact of insights into these issues on the ongoing attempt to understand the relationship between mind and brain. Cognitive Science addresses matters such as these, both by casting them within the appropriate philosophical framework and by considering the nature of specific behaviors in animal and machine. Scholarships are available for qualified students. Follow the links for a program description. An online application is coming soon.
