 *** Feel Free to Share with Graduate Students ***

 The ACT Washington Office would like to call your attention to a
 premier summer program for graduate students at the Washington,
 DC, headquarters of the World Bank.

 The SEP is open to students who possess an undergraduate degree and
 are enrolled in a graduate program. Generally, successful
 candidates will have completed their first year of graduate studies
 or are already into their Ph.D. studies. The SEP is open to
 graduate students who are nationals of the Bank's member countries.
 SEP participants can start work as early as May and generally must
 complete their duties by September 30. A commitment of a minimum of
 four weeks is expected. The deadline for requesting applications is
 January 31, 1996. ALL APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY FEBRUARY 29, 1996.

 The Bank pays a monthly salary and will provide a travel
 allowance. For 1996, the SEP is seeking candidates in the
 following fields: economics, finance, human resource development
 (public health, education, nutrition, population) social sciences
 (anthropology and sociology), environment, private sector
 development, statistics, as well as related fields. Fluency in
 English is required, and knowledge of another World Bank Group
 language (French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese, Chinese)
 is useful. Requests for an application can be made electronically
 by sending a request to <> or by sending a
 snail request to Summer Employment Program, The World Bank, 1818 H
 Street, NW, Washington, DC 20433 USA. Since the Bank cannot
 transmit the application electronically, include a snail address.
 An auto-reply will advise interested granduate students taht the
 forms will be snail mailed within three working days.

 The Bank managers will select approximately 200 SEP participants
 from several thousand expected applicants. The Bank will contact
 all successful applicants by June 1996 and requests that
 applicants not contact the small SEP staff for status reports.

 Please understand that this is a World Bank, not an ACT, program.
 ACT's interest is in disseminating information about an
 outstanding opportunity. If anyone is unsuccessful in getting the
 application material in a timely manner from the Bank, we will be
 happy to forward your request and attempt to facilitate delivery
 of the application material to prospective applicants.

 ACT would also invite all successful candidates to stop by its
 offices at One Dupont for a visit during your stay in Washington.
