AWE Newsletter: Week of 4/26

We hope you are doing well wherever you are! Check out the rest of this newsletter for CS-related opportunities (see who's still hiring for this summer!) and resources that can help you during these uncertain times.

Also, did you know AWE has a blog? Check it out here.

A couple of reminders:

1. Join our Slack channel.

If you aren't already on the workspace, this is our main form of communication! You'll automatically join some channels but can press the plus sign next to "Channels" on the sidebar to join more channels. 

2. Sign up for AWE membership again for the semester.

Please fill out this form again, even if you have already in the past!
Please note that all the times listed are in PST!
Fill out the ESC demographic form!
ESC is the Engineering Student Council, a group of Berkeley Engineering student representatives. They are collecting important demographic info to show who makes up the engineering community -- you can help by filling it out and letting them know that you are a part of AWE!

If enough AWE members fill out the form, we will be ESC-affiliated!
Let's go!

COVID-19 & Campus Student Resources

Student Emergency Needs Fund

The College of Engineering and Engineering Student Services have set up the Engineering Student Emergency Needs Fund and a process to review requests and distribute urgently needed financial aid.

Apply here!

Technology Discounts and Financial Aid Adjustments

Take advantage of special student discounts on devices from major retailers. If you need additional funds to purchase a computing device, you may request a cost of living adjustment through the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.  

Laptop and WiFi Hotspot Lending Program

If the technology resources you have available to you do not enable your effective participation in remote instruction or other academic work, visit the Laptop and WiFi Hotspot Lending Program page for information on the university’s lending program and access to discounts. 

Stay Well Together

Through the newly launched Stay Well Together initiative, students can find a comprehensive directory of resources on and off-campus to support their overall wellness.   
On-Campus Opportunities

5th Year MIDS Program

We at the UC Berkeley School of Information (I School) are so excited to welcome our second 5th Year MIDS cohort this fall! We can't wait to continue assisting Cal undergrads with accelerating their career paths and achieving their dreams.

Because graduating students' work and internships situations have changed due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have had increasing interest in 5th Year MIDS, and requests to be considered for this Fall 2020.

We are delighted to share that, in response to this demand, we are offering a third application deadline of June 1 at 8:59pm PST. Also, given that students may currently be experiencing higher than usual financial strain, we will be waiving application fees. In order to waive your application fee, simply select "Credit Card" as your payment method in your application. Please do not submit payment. Apply today; see 5th Year MIDS Application Requirements

You can start your admissions application here.

Industry Opportunities

Roblox is hiring!

Roblox has decided to expand their intern program in light of the impact of COVID-19 on students. They are currently hiring Engineering Interns and Design Interns for Summer 2020. If you have any questions, please contact
