									Dear Michael and Amy,

Wow, another year has flown by and here we are again ready to start the Scholarship and Fellowship
process for 2012. With your help I’m anticipating that we’ll have much better success this year.

ISA is pleased to announce that it is offering a $4,000 Fellowship grant to a graduate student and a
$2000 Scholarship grant to an undergrad student in the Electrical Engineering or Physics Departments to
be awarded in 2012. As before, once student data has been delivered to ISA, Management will review
each application and selectS winners in the December timeframe.

I’ve attached ISA Fellowship and Scholarship Application Forms that we used last year that have been
updated to reflect the deadline for submitting applications for this year. Each application form has the
requirements stated, as well as the required support data and deadline for submittal on the form. Please
highlight on the information distributed to students that there are no obligations on their part to be eligible
for the award. A timetable of events is listed later in this announcement email

This information is on the form for the students, but here are the qualifying requirements you will want to
publish when you announce the fellowship availability:

  Fellowship for Graduate Students:
    1) Electrical or Physics Engineering students in their first to third year of graduate study
    2) Have a minimum 3.5 GPA
    3) U.S. Citizens (ISA is a U.S. Government defense contractor and scholarship candidates must be
       able to meet the requirements to obtain a U.S. Government security clearance)
    4) Applications must be accompanied with a student resume, current transcript, and a letter of
       recommendation from a faculty member

  Scholarship for Undergrad Students:
   1) Electrical or Physics Engineering students currently in their sophomore or junior year
   2) Have a minimum 3.5 GPA
   3) U.S. Citizens (ISA is a U.S. Government defense contractor and scholarship candidates must be
      able to meet the requirements to obtain a U.S. Government security clearance)
   4) Applications must be accompanied with a student resume

In the past at UM, applications were emailed directly to me rather than collected at the school and sent as
a bundle. I’m assuming you’d prefer to continue working that way. If not, please let me know because
the application form contains submittal directions to the students.

Here is a timetable I'd like to work toward:
   1) All applications submitted by 28 September
   2) Meet with “willing” applicants during my on-campus visit on 10/10 & 10/11.
   3) Collaborate with ISA Management and make a decision NLT 3 December
   4) Send decision announcements out the week of 10 December

Please let me know if this timetable will work for you and of course give me a holler if you have any
questions or concerns.

Thanks for your help in getting this information out to the students,
