The Purdue Center for Global Food Security (PCGFS) announces a new grant competition for undergraduate students. The PCGFS Student Innovation Grant support undergraduate students in any academic discipline working in teams to develop a technology or program that may render creative solutions to a vexing food security problem for stressed communities in a developing country or for programs that support food insecure communities within the state of Indiana. Two grants of $10,000 each for international projects and two grants of $3,000 each for local projects will be awarded. To carry innovations forward, students must commit to entering their projects in subsequent national or international innovation grant competitions.  Applications are due March 14, 2014


A limited number of Indiana College Network (ICN) online courses are avaible in the spring, but only if Purdue in-class or online version of these courses are not available.  Students must have enough credit hours available to add these courses.  That means, for example, if a student has restricted hours due to probation, an ICN cannot be added to try to circumvent the limit.

Spring Courses include:

EAPS 10000 Intro  Topics Earth Atmo                       3 credits               CRN 71878

EAPS 19100 Intro  Topics Earth Atmo  Lab              1 credit                 CRN 71879

MUS  25000  Music Appreciation                               3 credits               CRN  71881

MGMT 20000 Financial Accounting                           3 credits               CRN 71877

OLS 27400  Applied Leadership                                   3 credits               CRN 71880

Courses are 8-weeks in length: March 17 – May 10.  The last day to register for an ICN course is March 12.  An ICN application and advisor-signed Form 23 is required, so make an appointment with your EXPL advisor before adding a course. The Division of Online Learning is located in STEW, G-59 and is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Wednesday hours are 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  They are closed daily 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. for lunch.
