SKY Happiness Retreat is a comprehensive wellness program taught over three days that trains participants in the evidence-based SKY meditation practice, breathwork, yoga, social connection, and mindful leadership. SKY has been shown to significantly benefit six well-being outcomes – depression, stress, mental health, mindfulness, positive affect, and social connectedness compared to state-of-the-art well-being interventions*.

SKY Breath Meditation is a powerful tool to de-stress, energize the mind and body, helps one manage emotions effortlessly, and be more productive and happier in every aspect of life. In addition to a take home breathwork and meditation technique, participants discover how to connect with others and find a deeper purpose through engaging interpersonal exercises and service initiatives to increase self-esteem, social connection, positive relationships, practical soft skills, the mindset of responsibility, and skills for effective leadership.

Georgia Environmental Scholarship Opportunity

The GEC Student Scholarship Program provides college students the unique opportunity to showcase their research on timely environmental issues and network with a wide range of environmental professionals from throughout the Southeast and beyond.

Finalists are invited to attend the Georgia Environmental Conference (August 21-23, 2024 | Jekyll Island) and present their research via a poster session. Finalists are granted full conference registration, and three nights lodging. Finalists are expected to provide their own travel to and from the conference. Additional Eligibility & Conditions are listed at the link below.

Multiple $1,500 scholarships may be awarded after the final round of judging at the conference. In addition to the monetary award, scholarship recipients will be recognized on the conference website, and will be offered a complimentary registration for the Georgia Environmental Conference for the following year.

In my experience competing as a student, this is a prime opportunity to meet potential employers. I myself came out of the conference with three interviews. I also found that receiving feedback on my research from practicing engineers was incredibly valuable in looking at my research results differently.

Fellowship for Recent PhDs at DARPA

DARPA recently launched the Innovation Fellowship, a 2-year on-site position for early career scientists (within 5 years of defending). Fellows develop and manage a portfolio of high-risk, high-impact exploratory efforts to identify breakthrough technologies for the Department of Defense.

We’re eager to spread the word about this program, and would appreciate your help in passing along the attached information to current and former graduate students who may be interested, or posting it on department job boards. This is a unique opportunity for scientists to make meaningful contributions while advancing their careers, broadening their research experience outside the laboratory, and engaging with leaders in industry, academia, government, and entrepreneurial circles.
