    News in the United States about Mexico is often comprised of crime and violence surrounding the drug trafficking industry. More recently, however, stories about Mexico's rapidly growing manufacturing industry have made front pages of major newspapers and blogs, slowly changing the perception of this developing country. While the majority of these articles tend to be industry-focused, the real story is the Mexican workforce and how it is transforming a nation.

    Not dissimilar to many developing countries, the Mexican workforce is comprised of both men and woman; however, the female workforce in Mexico has quietly grown in numbers and strength throughout factory floors and at all professional levels. In a country run mostly by men, women have begun to demonstrate their strength and importance, helping transform stereotypes and perceptions about Mexico and its place as a global business powerhouse.

    Eligibility:
    To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be female students currently enrolled in college.

    W.W. Smith Charitable Trust  Heart Research Program
    Description:
    The W.W. Smith Trust has historically made and continues to make its greatest investment in medical research. Even with impressive gains, there are still a number of diseases for which there are no cures, requiring more research to understand their origins and progression. The Trust continues to fund basic medical research in the areas of Heart Disease, Cancer, and AIDS. The philosophy of the Trust has been not to replicate governmental funding organizations, but identify and fund projects that are unique and meritorious. The Trust tries to select promising researchers who have the potential to attract the National Institutes of Health or other large funding organizations after the Trusts support.
    Eligibility:
  • Applicants should be Junior Faculty (for generally pre-NIH funding)
  • Applicants must be faculty members with primary appointments at JHU as of July 1 of the year in which they are applying.
  • The Trust is interested in research that has the potential to attract the support of the National Institutes of Health or other large funding organizations after the investigator receives the Trusts funding.
  • New or less recognized investigators are strongly encouraged to apply
