3. FULBRIGHT U.S. STUDENT PROGRAM APPLICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE – 2nd posting
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.  The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding. Grant lengths and dates vary by country. Consult webpage for specific details. http://us.fulbrightonline.org. Contact  Christina M.

6. PARTICIPANTS SOUGHT FOR VT-SCORES STUDY – 2nd posting
VT-SCORES (Virginia Tech Signal Control & Operation Research and Education Systems lab) is conducting a study to collect information on the novel traffic control mechanism for self-driving vehicles. This mechanism is enabling users to select Priority Level for their trip, which is then used to determine right-of-way at an intersection for self-driving vehicles. In addition, there is a supporting structure of non-monetary Priority Credits. Researchers are trying to collect information on decision-making and opinions on this traffic control mechanism for self-driving vehicles using an Internet-based experiment. The study will take around 10 minutes, and your participation can contribute to the development of novel self-driving vehicle control technology. Participation is voluntary and data obtained will be confidential. You can opt out of the experiment at any time. Must be at least 18 years of age; Those who complete the whole experiment may enter a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card. The odds for winning the raffle is estimated as 1 in 200.
