Arts fellowships

The application deadline for the 2005 List Foundation Fellowship is Monday, Jan. 24. The fellowship offers an award of up to $5,000 for an MIT sophomore or junior for a year-long project in the performing, literary, visual or media arts. The program is geared toward students who want to explore their personal, racial and cultural identity through an exploration of traditional and non-traditional art forms. During the fellowship, the student can work with a mentor with a background in their art form. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and remain in good academic standing throughout the project. Interested students should e-mail artsfellowship@mit.edu to set up an appointment to discuss their application. More information is available online.

Arts grants available

Friday, Jan. 28. is the deadline for the second round of arts funding through the 2004-05 Council for the Arts Grants Program. All students, faculty and staff may apply. Forms are available in the Office of the Arts (Room E15-205) or on the office's web site.

MIT book catalog published

The MIT Press has created a new catalog exclusively for the MIT community, featuring its MIT and MIT-related titles. The catalog brings together for the first time new books, familiar books, and some less well-known titles that MIT readers may enjoy discovering. Titles range from MIT histories and social commentaries to the entertaining "Nightwork," a history of student hacks, and illustrated books about MIT and on Boston/Cambridge topics. The new catalog--MIT @ The MIT Press--offers a special discount on bulk purchases to encourage readers to buy copies as gifts for campus visitors, family and others.

To request a copy of the catalog, contact Erika Valenti at 258-0582 or special_sales@mitpress.mit.edu.
