Community-University Connection: Congratulations to Lindy, Mariam, and Annette!

Congratulations to three of our PulseWire members - Lindy (http://www.worldpulse.com/user/1511), Mariam (http://www.worldpulse.com/user/7483), and Annette (http://www.worldpulse.com/user/7231) whose project proposals have been selected and showcased through MIT's Public Service Center! Students with advanced skills in a variety of fields are now able to partner with these organizations and apply to their university for the funding for their selected service projects this coming summer. All of us here at World Pulse are thrilled that three of our strong and dedicated members have received this incredible opportunity to work with MIT students in order to improve their organizations and communities!

This is an ongoing opportunity with a rolling deadline and I greatly encourage all PulseWire members to submit a proposal to the PulseWire Community-University Connection Group. Consider the amazing feats you could accomplish for your organization or community with the help of talented and responsible student volunteers! This is also a good experience to create a proposal you may be able submit to prospective donors and grant foundations.

You may see our own three member's successful proposals along with many others by clicking on the following link: http://web.mit.edu/mitpsc/showcase/opportunities/international.html

I am available to answer all questions about the process, as well as to help you refine your project proposals. To begin, please join the PulseWire Community-University Connection Group (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/33709) to learn how to connect with talented students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who may be able to volunteer for 1-3 months to help you solve specific challenges in your community. Students have advanced skills in engineering, design, computer science, information technology (IT), business, architecture and planning, and many other fields, and are often looking for opportunities to solve real problems facing organizations and communities around the world.

Best wishes,
