Obtaining Scholarships It is typical for persons to find scholarships in their home region.

Information on these can be found by asking local persons and organizations. Typically, these are less competitive as the eligible population is smaller. * Guidance counselors: When starting to explore scholarship opportunities, high school students should definitely check in with their guidance counselors. They can be a great resource for local scholarships. * Non-profit organizations: Most non-profit organizations have at some point of their history founded scholarships for prospective students: * Community foundations: Many counties / cities / regions have a local foundation dedicated to giving money in the form of grants and scholarships to people and organizations in the area. * Labor unions: All the major labor unions offer scholarships for members and their dependent children. * Houses of worship: The local house of worship may or may not have any scholarships for their members, but the religious organization or headquarters may have some available. Of course, the bestsupported area is the study of theology. * Chamber of commerce: Many chambers of commerce offer (usually small) grants to students in the community, especially those planning on careers in business and public service. Even if they do not offer any themselves, you can usually get a listing of members, and many of them may offer small scholarships to local students. * Other volunteer organizations: Many organizations offer scholarships or award grants to students whose background or chosen field overlaps the field of the organization. For example, local chapters of professional societies may help the studies of exceptionally distinguished students of the region. Similarly, charity organizations may offer help, especially if the late parent of the student was a member of the organization (e.g., a Masonic lodge might help the orphan of a lodge brother.) However, this kind of scholarship is mostly random. * School: Old, well-known schools have often been endowed with scholarship funds. * University: Old, well -established universities may have funds to finance the studies of extremely talented students of little means. To be eligible for them, the student must usually belong to some special category or be among the nation's best. However, universities have information available on scholarships and grants, possibly even internship opportunities. * PSAT/NMSQT: In the United States, students are offered the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT test, usually in their junior year of high school. Not only does it help them to prepare for the SAT later on, but National Merit Scholarship programs are determined, in the first step, by the scores received on the PSAT/NMSQT test. Some private scholarship programs require the applicants to take the PSAT. Other sources of information on scholarships are libraries, newspapers, the yellow pages, and Internet search engines. Knights 2009 scholarships for Rhodes Universitys Media Leadership Institute The Sol Plaatje Institute for Media Leadership (SPI) at Rhodes Universitys School of Journalism and Media Studies invites applications for three scholarships from Southern African students who wish to register for the SPIs Postgraduate Diploma in Media Management (PDMM) in 2009. The scholarships are sponsored by the Knight Foundation. These are partial scholarships which cover only the students accommodation at Rhodes University, the PDMM tuition fees and books and study materi als. This means that successful applicants must make their own arrangements for transportation to and from Rhodes University; medical insurance and a living stipend during the year. Non-South African students should additionally budget about R3500 (three thousand and five hundred rand) to cover a levy for foreign students studying at Rhodes University.

The PDMM is a one-year, full-time programme designed to provide people working in the media industry with skills and knowledge they need to perform more effectively in their organisations and to fast-track their careers to management positions. The PDMM is equivalent to an honours degree and combines rigorous theoretical and practical grounding. The diploma is composed of eight compulsory modules covering media economics and financial management; media markets, audiences and advertising; managing media content; managing circulation and distribution; media management and leadership; media management contexts, policy and institutions; new media and convergence; and human resources. Application details and procedures: Students from Southern Africa are eligible to apply for these scholarships. Applicants should ideally come from media companies which are currently using or experimenting with new media, besides their traditional business platforms. Successful applicants will be required to conduct research into the use of new media platforms by a Rhodes University-owned newspaper, the Grocotts Mail. Applicants should ideally have completed an undergraduate degree from a recognised university. Experienced media practitioners with diplomas in journalism or mass communication studies will also be considered. Students wishing to apply for these scholarships need to: Complete the Rhodes Universitys standard Honours application form and the New Student form. Alternatively, they can request these application forms from SPI administrator Linda Snam ( l.snam@ru.ac.za) or telephone her at +27-046603-8782. y Submit a detailed curriculum vitae, including contact details y Submit a certified academic transcript; and y Submit a 1000-word letter of motivation, which explains why the student is interested in doing the PDMM; how the PDMM will assist the students career and why the student believes she/he qualifies for the scholarship. The cv, academic transcript and letter of motivation may be submitted by email to Linda Snam, or faxed to her at +27 -046-6229591, clearly indicating which scholarship the students is applying for.

It also provides academic courses in these areas and organize the International Master in Economics and Finance.

The ICEF currently has the following vacancy: Postdoctoral fellow, full time for 24 months, for the project Hedge funds: tail event behaviour and absolute alphas.

Recent literature evaluating hedge funds performance asserts that there seems to be a talent in the hedge fund industry. One of the main problems in the research on the hedge funds extra -performance is the need to take into account the well known non -normality on returns and the non linear dependence from standard asset benchmarks due to the use of derivatives and dynamic trading strategies. How this affects the performance measurement is one of the central issues in this project. The focus is on the in tegration of dynamic models for risk measurement and hedge funds replication strategies. This project will allow a junior researcher to develop studies on a new area of finance: the alternative investments and specifically the hedge fund industry.

This is a project co -financed by the University Ca Foscari of Venice ( www.unive.it) and GRETA (Venice, http://www.greta.it/en/index.htm ).

The ideal candidate should hol d a PhD in Finance (or be very close to finishing its PhD). A strong research potential in Finance are required.

The candidate is expected to conduct high -quality empirical research and to interact with other faculty members. Good writing and computing skills are essential. Fluency in English is required. The position is free of administrative duties and teaching obligatio ns. If a small teaching load is desired, this can be accommodated and rewarded. It is an untenured post -doctoral position with dura tion of two years. Tentative beginning of appointment September 2008. An extension of the term is not excluded.

Salary (before taxes and pension contributions): Approx. 45.000 Euro (approx. 70,000 USD) for the entire duration of the program . The salary is exempt to taxation.

Further information on the profile of the position may be obtained from Prof. Dr. Monica Billio at billio@unive.it. Applications including the application form (see below), curriculum vitae, scientific publications, 2 referees names and addresses being able to provide reference letters, in English or in Italian, and a copy of a valid Identity Document or Passport have to be sent to:

The objective is to train students to acquire a deeper and more sophisticated knowledge of economic and financial tools, thus preparing specialists in the fields of the analysis of financial markets, risk measurement and management, bank ing and corporate finance. The International Master in Economics and Finance is a truly unique programme. No other school in Italy can offer a faculty of such high-standard international ranking. Courses are in English to encourage interaction between international students, as well as with the international teaching staff. The Masters programme is a limited entry course. The maximum number of places available is 20. The links with financial markets and institutions facilitate contacts with many prospective industry employers and guide individuals through the choice of their career path and job application process. Almost all our students find a job immediately after the end of the Master in leading financial institutions or in research centres. Applicants have to satisfy one of the following requirements: hold a specialist degree (laurea specialistica) in accordance with the new Italian university system; hold a four-year degree in accordance with the previous Italian university system; (for foreign students) hold an equivalent university qualification. For admission, the Academic Board determines the educational equivalence of the foreign graduation; applicants are allowed to enrol for the Master before obtaining their degree. However, they must acq uire their degree within the academic year previous to the one in which the Master falls in. (e.g.: Master edition 2008 -09, degree obtained within the academic year 2007-08). At the end of the courses, each student is offered an internship period which usu ally leads to a subsequent placement. For the internship/placement assignment, IMEF is facilitated by privileged channels with national and international firms, banks and financial institutions, in Italy and in other European countries. The Masters programme will be held at the ICEF (International Center for Economics and Finance), Department of Economics, University Ca Foscari of Venice.
