From Water Wars to Water Riots?
We provide still another type of student aid in the assistantships available to graduate students. Despite these impressive over-all totals, the Institute has inadequate funds for undergraduate scholarships.
For the year we were able temporarily to increase this amount out of reserves. This inadequacy of undergraduate scholarships reflects a national inadequacy in the scholarship funds of schools of engineering and institutes of technology.
These institutions are strikingly poorer in scholarship funds than the top liberal-arts universities. In my judgment this discrepancy works to the disadvantage of the engineering profession and it has played a part in the declining enrollments in engineering.
We wish to be sure that exceptional young people interested in these fields are not denied a superior education for financial reasons. We are convinced that many able young men do not even approach M.
It has been the experience of several institutions which have established such national scholarships that these scholarships tend to attract able students in numbers beyond the number of awards available. Dean Bowditch and Dean Pitr6 have proposed the establishment of 25 national scholarships of substantial stipend and have presented convincing arguments that such an addition to our undergraduate scholarship program would help significantly in our admissions program.
This is more than double the amount earned in the previous year. The Technology Loan Fund plays a major part in our student aid program and in serving the student who wishes to take responsibility for helping to finance his own education. Last fall a questionnaire was sent by Mr.
Lobdell, Chairman of the Loan Board, to those who had fully repaid their obligations, and the answers indicated a high level of accomplishment by these men.
The replies also indicated great enthusiasm for this form of student aid. The loan arrangement would seem to be particularly appropriate for a technological school, whose graduates are in great demand by industry and in fields where salaries are relatively high.
The demand by industry for M. The average student received from four to six offers of employment, and salaries were higher than the year before. Sloan Building, the Faculty Club opened its doors in May, ushering in a welcome new era in the community life of the Institute and splendidly fulfilling one of the desiderata long urged by the Faculty.
Under the effective direction of its enthusiastic officers, the Club has already established itself as a community center. Over eight hundred members are enrolled, and the roster is growing. Membership is open to all M.
The Club is not operated by the Institute but by its members, who are represented on a number of committees. Space for the Club was provided through the generosity of the Alfred P.
The furnishings and equipment were provided by a generous donation made by our fellow member, Mr. The facilities include a main dining room with accommodations forfour private dining rooms, several rooms for overnight guests, a lounge, game room, and other pleasant appurtenances appropriate to a social club.
Not the least of the advantages of the Club is the opportunity it affords its members to extend hospitality to the Institute's many distinguished visitors in appropriate campus quarters.
If the high technology of our national economy poses one kind of demand, the need for men in these fields in the undeveloped regions or less highly industrialized nations is in some respects even more urgent.
In recent years, M. Last year over 10 per cent of our student body came from other countries. This student-run project, which was started in the summer ofnow has an active alumni body of members in 40 countries.
New visa regulations since have made it possible to increase the number of foreign nationals who are at the Institute as graduate students with assured part-time jobs, those on the instructing staff and research workers.
This past year we have increased the number of men and women in these categories. We have a large flow of visitors to our campus from abroad, and, in recent years, we have been host to many individuals and groups whose trips to this country have been sponsored under the technical-assistance programs of our government.
Sometimes these visits require elaborate arrangements involving many members of the staff.
For example, in June we were asked to plan a day-long seminar on research management and related questions for a group representing 16 Marshall Plan countries whose visit to this country was being sponsored by the Organization for European Economic Cooperation and the Mutual Security Agency.
Nor has our participation in the technical assistance programs been limited to the reception of visitors.Онлайн пазл Синяя ауди состоит из 80 деталей, его размер 10x8.
