Message 1: Fellows of the Cognitive Science Society Announced

Date: Tue, 16 Apr 2002 11:45:05 -0500
From: Art Markman <markmanpsy.utexas.edu>
Subject: Fellows of the Cognitive Science Society Announced

For immediate release:


This year, the Cognitive Science Society has decided to begin 
honoring people who have made significant contributions to the field 
by designating a set of Fellows of the Society. In order to ensure 
that this designation becomes a mark of distinction within the field 
of Cognitive Science, the Governing Board of the society felt that it 
would be best to select a group of five eminent scientists who have 
made outstanding contributions to Cognitive Science throughout their 
careers. These individuals would comprise the set of inaugural 
Fellows. They in turn would help us to select the next ten Fellows. 
Future selections would be made by a group comprised of current 
Fellows of the society.

The Cognitive Science Society is pleased to announce the inaugural fellows:

John Anderson
Jeff Elman
Rochel Gelman
Lila Gleitman
Pat Hayes

A call for nominations of new fellows of the Cognitive Science 
Society will be sent out soon. More information about the society 
can be found at http://www.cognitivesciencesociety.org

Message 2: Opportunities for US Institutions to Host Regional Scholar Exchange Program fellows

Subject: Opportunities for US Institutions to Host Regional Scholar Exchange Program fellows

IREX is pleased to announce opportunities for US institutions to serve as
host institutions for participants of the Regional Scholar Exchange Program
(RSEP). This program is for citizens of all 12 NIS countries including:
Armenia,
Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Russian
Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

The Regional Scholar Exchange Program (RSEP), a program of the Bureau of
Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State, and
administered by IREX, provides opportunities for junior and mid-level
university faculty, researchers, scholars, and advanced graduate students
from the NIS to conduct research in the United States for four months with
the goal of contributing to the further development of higher education and
scholarship in their home countries. Research must be in the social sciences
or humanities. 

Hosting an international fellow brings a variety of benefits to US
institutions such as free publicity through IREX and the fellow, campus
diversity, and the establishment of new contacts and international
collaboration. IREX provides complete logistical support and monitors the
progress of each fellow while they are on the program.

US host institutions are asked to provide a host advisor willing to meet
with the fellow to help guide them in their research as well as interaction
with faculty, office space or other work space (shared if necessary), access
to research resources (libraries, archives, other materials on location,
etc.), as well as access to computer, e-mail, and Internet facilities.

The fellowship is fully funded covering travel, housing, living stipend,
medical insurance, and a professional development allowance. 

Additional information and applications for hosting RSEP NIS fellows in the
United States can be obtained and submitted by contacting IREX at
rsepirex.org. Applications can also be downloaded at

Opportunities are also available to host participants of the FSA
Contemporary Issues Fellowship Program (CI). Applications and information
