Request from Author Leora Tanenbaum, Brown '91
Dear Brown students,
Ever been called a “slut” or a “whore”?
Gotten caught up in sexting?
Fed up with the pressure to wear “slutty” clothes?
My name is Leora Tanenbaum. I am a Brown alumna and the author of Slut! Growing Up Female with a Bad Reputation and other books. I’ve been a guest on “Oprah,” “The Today Show,” and National Public Radio. Slut!, called one of “20 must-read books for women,” is a required text in many gender/women's studies and sociology courses.
I am writing a new book about the ways in which young women and teenage girls are mistreated—on the Internet and in-person—as a result of a sexual reputation.
Would you like to participate in my research? If yes, I will set up a time to meet with you or speak with you over the phone. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about me and my work, please visit www.leoratanenbaum.com or email me.
I will not use your name without your written permission, and I will give you a copy of my new book upon publication.
Together, let’s rid the world of slut-shaming.
Leora Tanenbaum '91

ATTENTION STUDENT ACTIVISTS!
Since 1961 the Davis-Putter Fund has provided need-based grants to students who are able to do academic work at the college level and are involved in building movements for social and economic justice. Grantees are both graduates and undergraduates enrolled in accredited schools for the period covered by their grant. Although citizenship is not a consideration, applicants must be enrolled in an accredited program in the US in order to qualify.
The maximum grant is $10,000 and may be considerably smaller depending on the applicant's circumstances and the funding available. All the funds come from individual donors and there are 25-30 grants awarded each year. Grants are for one year although students may re-apply for subsequent years.
Applications and the supporting documents -- transcripts, a personal statement, two letters of recommendation, a photograph, financial aid reports -- must be postmarked by April 1. Those selected to receive a grant will be notified in July.
2013-2014 Surety Industry Intern and Scholarship Program for Minority Students
The Surety Foundation, the educational arm of The Surety & Fidelity Association of America (SFAA), would like to announce the opening of the competition for Academic Year 2013-2014 internships and scholarship awards under the Surety and Fidelity Industry Intern and Scholarship Program for Minority Students. This Program provides awards of up to $5,000 to outstanding undergraduate minority students to support their studies in the areas of insurance/risk management, accounting, economics, or business/finance and to encourage their consideration of the surety and fidelity industry and surety/fidelity underwriting as a career choice. The Surety and Fidelity Industry Scholarship awards are funded by annual grants from SFAA, and additional funding from member companies, local surety associations, current and retired individual surety professionals, and others. The internships are paid for by the participating member companies. The program, established in 2003, is administered through The Surety Foundation, which was established by the SFAA Board of Directors in 2005 to serve as the vehicle to fund and administer these activities.
