Science for Change - July 18, 2012
This lecture series brings top minds to The University of Texas at Austin to speak about how scientists advance our social and economic future. It's about what scientists can do outside of the laboratory or doctor's office.
We live in an age when scientific discoveries are expanding the minds and improving the quality of life of all people on Earth. Science and technology are at the core of our nation's prosperity, providing the economic advantage for our nation to compete in a global economy. Now, more than ever, our nation needs citizen scientists who will step out of the confines of universities and into public life to provide the leadership our nation requires. Join us for the Science for Change lecture series, in which government leaders in public policy, education and economic policy tell us how they contribute to our future, and how you can too.

About Scientists for Tomorrow
The University of Texas at Austin and the College of Natural Sciences (CNS) have incredible resources for education in the sciences. As a large college at a premier research institution in a state with an increasingly diverse population, we offer an ideal mechanism for implementation of
Our new scholarship program, Scientists for Tomorrow, allows the College of Natural Sciences, in partnership with individual departments, to offer competitive recruiting scholarships to top incoming students interested in science. It takes advantage of existing outreach and recruiting efforts including college honors programs, undergraduate research and diversity initiatives. Students who enter UT-Austin as part of this program are seamlessly integrated into extremely successful first-year programs within their discipline, programs that involve small classes, strong cohorts, academic communities, tutoring and career planning, and guided toward early involvement in undergraduate research and additional funding opportunities. We anticipate that this scholarship program, in partnership with existing programs, will not only allow improved recruiting of these students, but also greatly affect their trajectory toward graduate programs and careers in science.
