•The Columbian Women of GW Scholarship, Applications Due 14 Mar
The Columbian Women of GW scholarship application period is now open. Each year, Columbian Women awards $90,000 in scholarships to women attending GW. Scholarships are provided to students of all GW schools. Apply by 14 Mar. See www.columbianwomen.org for eligibility criteria and more information. Contact email@example.com with questions.
•Student Responsibilities: Continuous Enrollment
Students are responsible for knowing and following policies and procedures, which may be found in the University Bulletin, GWSB Bulletin section, and the MSPM Student Handbook. Per these sources, students are required to maintain continuous enrollment once they enter a degree program. A student is considered to be continuously enrolled when registered for courses through GW or when registered for an approved leave of absence. Enrollment required in fall and spring semesters, summer semester enrollment is not required. Failure to take such action requires students to make a formal application for reinstatement.
The Atlantic Council is seeking applications for the Take Point Initiative, a fellowship program open to veterans of the United States Armed Forces who are 35 years old and younger and who currently work in, or would like to transition to, careers in international policy. The program includes opportunities to network with potential employers and funders, deepen their substantive policy expertise, and build nonprofit and thought leadership skills over the course of an intensive ten-day fellowship program in Washington, DC planned for October 13 – 23, 2015. Additionally, the Council will award over $60,000 in grant funds to Take Point fellows to support their work. In turn, fellows will commit to using their training to help provide a voice for other young veterans in the foreign policy discourse, including injured veterans.
Application deadline is August 16, 2015. Learn more at http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/programs/millennium-leadership-program/veterans-take-point-initiative/apply-now-veterans-take-point-initiative

•How to Register on GWeb
If you ever forget how to register for classes or need to confirm your schedule for a given semester, the Office of the Registrar website provides detailed instructions on how to accomplish these tasks. They also have an online tutorial to guide you through the registration process.
Once you register for the Summer 2015 (now open) or Fall 2015 (opens 23 Mar) semesters, confirm your schedule in GWeb by following these steps:
1. Select ‘Student Records & Registration Menu,’ then ‘Registration Menu.’
2. Select ‘Student Schedule by Day & Time’ to view your schedule for any given week. Select ‘Student Detail Schedule’ to view your schedule for a given term. Select the term of interest and ‘Submit.’ Full details for your registered courses will be listed. This is a great way to confirm that you registered for the correct sections, whether they be distance/online or on campus.
Each student is provided these tools to better manage themselves and their schedules. I recommend you each learn to use the tools and take full advantage of them.
