During the past two years Lynn University has planned and executed a new core curriculum called The Dialogues of Learning. The new core marries the traditional liberal arts focus on classical texts and knowledge with a dedication to preparing students for real world professional practice. The undergraduate core courses are small in size, taught by experienced faculty, both internationally and domestically focused, and completely interdisciplinary.


The president of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, the leading national association concerned with the quality and vitality of international education has called the university's new core curriculum inspirational, and has praised it for ensuring that Lynn students graduate outstandingly prepared for life, work and citizenship.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), one of the top engineering schools in the nation is highly committed to offering affordable education.  In 2009, international scholarships are available to full-time, non-fully sponsored, international students. The scholarship amounts are determined based on grade point average (GPA).

By means of a bequest from the Nobel Prize-winning Economist, Professor Ronald Coase, the University of Buckingham annually offers two full Scholarships for undergraduate study in Economics (or for Economics in combination with Law, Business, or Politics). Each Scholarship, worth in total more than £30,000, covers the University's full tuition fees, accommodation costs, and provides for a generous maintenance grant.


UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School is delighted to offer prospective students the opportunity to apply for a range of scholarships for the academic year 2009/2010.

Candidates must apply for their preferred programme before submitting an application for a scholarship and must meet all of the admissions criteria prior to commencement.  Candidates must also be prepared to interview.

The central aim of the programme is to give young researchers the opportunity to perform their PhD work in the rapidly moving field of the infection biology of human microbial pathogens in a highly stimulating, competitive, international environment. The core element of the IRTG is a joint research programme centering on the question how human microbial pathogens achieve acute or persistent infection and how the host organism reacts to persistent infection. In addition, graduate students will participate in a highly interdisciplinary joint study programme.

The Database Group of the University of Twente offers a job opening in the NWO Vidi Project "Distributed Information Retrieval by means of Keyword Auctions".


The project's aim is to distribute internet search functionality in such a way that communities of users and/or federations of small search systems provide search services in a collaborative way. Instead of getting all data to a centralized point and process queries centrally, as is done by today's search systems, the project will distribute queries over many small autonomous search systems and process them locally.


In this project, the PhD student will research a new approach to distribute search: distributed information retrieval by means of keyword auctions. Keyword auctions like Google's AdWords give advertisers the opportunity to provide targeted advertisements by bidding on specific keywords. Analogous to these keyword auctions, local search systems will bid for keywords at a central broker. They "pay" by serving queries for the broker. The broker will send queries to those local search systems that optimize the overall effectiveness of the system, i.e., local search systems that are willing to serve many queries, but also are able to provide high quality results.

Open position for a Ph.D. student to study serum biomarkers and protein-protein interactions using a proteomics approach. Extensive training in a variety of modern biochemical techniques will be provided. The candidate will become a student in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science at Clarkson University and will receive a Ph.D. from this University. The student will receive full tuition and a graduate stipend. The successful candidate must have strong background in analytical biochemistry, protein chemistry and cell biology. The successful candidate must also take the GRE and Toefl (if foreign).

The Cornell Archaeology Program invites applications for the Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate in Archaeology starting in fall 2009.

We invite applications from scholars who have completed the Ph.D. within the last five years with a specialization in archaeology. The position is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate will teach one undergraduate course (with optional graduate section) each semester, and will deliver at least one public lecture each year (one of which may form part of the Finger Lakes AIA or NYSAA lecture series).

In order to enhance the diversity of our international student population, University of Alaska Anchorage will offer three one-year tuition waivers to the first three non-sister-city international students to apply and be accepted to UAA for the Fall, 2009 semester with a referral from an EducationUSA advisor (Osvita).

The International Ibsen Scholarships were initiated in 2007 by the Norwegian government.
