National Academies Fellowships, Scholarships, and Grants
The National Academies consist of four organizations: the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council. The National Academy of Sciences was created by the federal government to be an adviser on scientific and technological matters. However, the Academy and its associated organizations are private, not governmental, organizations and do not receive direct federal appropriations for their work. Studies undertaken for the government by the National Academies usually are funded out of appropriations made available to federal agencies. The great majority of the studies carried out by the National Academies are at the request of government agencies.

The Get Schooled College Affordability Challenge
The Get Schooled College Affordability Challenge is a national competition created in partnership with MTV for current and aspiring college students to re-engineer the financial aid process.

The goal of the Challenge is to receive proposals for new digital tools that will help simplify the task of acquiring financial aid, particularly for low- and middle-income college students.

The Challenge's call for submissions will run from Sept. 16 to Dec. 17, 2010. In late January, three finalist concepts will be unveiled. These finalists will have the opportunity to work with a world-class innovation firm to iterate their ideas during a two-week period of intense creative collaboration. The winning individual or team will be rewarded with $10,000 and see their idea brought to life by MTV, the College Board and the Gates Foundation, with a development budget of up to $100,000. The final winning design will be announced in the spring of 2011.
