Hello BDIC administration, I am selected as Albert Einstein College of Medicine's Research and Public Service Scholar. It is a $80k merit scholarship given to individuals with extensive research and/or public service experience. In essence, it is a 2 year full ride to medical school. I was awarded it for my 4 years researching in cognitive psychology, computer science and my 8 years of public service work in India. I plan to continue my public service work in India during medical school and look at opportunities in medical technology.

Special congratulations to David Kastor, a BDIC faculty supervisor, who was elected as a fellow to the American Physical Society.

Wednesday November 13, 5-7pm, University Club
You are cordially invited to the Annual BDIC Faculty Recognition Night. This night will be an opportunity to not only meet with some of our talented Students, Faculty Sponsors, BDIC Staff, and Faculty Supervisors, but also a chance to reach across departmental boundaries and create lasting connections and friendships.

The School of Public Health and Health Sciences is holding their Annual Career Development and Internship Fair! The Fair is free for all students and will be held in the Student Union Ballroom from 10am-1pm. Stop by to learn about the opportunities available with many vendors! In the past, they have had representatives from the CDC, Health New England, the United Way, and more! See their website for more details:

Today I received an official offer for a GS-7 level Program Management position at Hanscom Air Force Base. This is the exact job I created my major for. My major consisted of Management/Project Management, Political Science, Criminal Justice, Legal Studies, Army and Air Force ROTC leadership. Through all of this I was able to create a major that successfully got me my dream entry level job for the Air Force.
The 13th annual Michael S. Roif Award in Film Studies will be presented to undergraduate certificate students in the Interdepartmental Program in Film Studies on Friday, May 3 at noon in 301 Herter Hall.

The most rewarding part about being a BDIC major is the freedom to study exactly what I want to learn.

I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to build my educational program from the ground up, with the support of a great team of faculty and staff.

From creating my major, I have learned to advocate for myself in all aspects of my life.
