The Department of Biology at American University would like to offer you 
an exciting opportunity to visit and learn more about our graduate 
programs in Biology and Environmental Sciences.  We have recently 
instituted new funding for both additional stipends and research supplies. 
 Qualified graduate students can now earn over $20,000 a year to support 
their graduate education. 
We are holding a Graduate Student Open House on Monday, February 21, 2005 
for you to visit and learn about potential research projects and graduate 
funding opportunities. This day-long event is designed to familiarize you 
with our campus resources and give you a better idea about the themes and 
goals of our Master's programs.  At these events, there will be many 
opportunities to talk with both faculty and graduate students. 

The day will start at 9 AM with a welcome and introduction to the 
Department, followed by a tour of our facilities and the campus, then a 
luncheon with faculty in the department.  In the afternoon we will have 
some short research talks from our faculty and graduate students.  At the 
end of the day, the graduate students will take you out for an informal 
pizza social. 
Please reply to Dr. Nancy Zeller, letting us know if you plan to attend 
the February 21st open house by Friday, February 18, 2005.  We will also 
try to find you accommodations with the graduate students or faculty for 
the nights of the 15th or the 16th.  Contact Nancy Zeller at 
nzeller at american.edu or 202-885-2191.  Let Dr. Zeller know if you would 
like to arrange accommodations and if you would like a copy of the agenda.
Applicants interested in funding are strongly encouraged to attend the 
Open House, as the departmental review of applications begins in late 
February.  Also note that attendees are awarded waivers for their 
application fees. I also encourage you to inquire about reimbursement for 
your travel costs to the event!  We hope you will be able to visit and 
learn more about our graduate programs.  If you have any questions, please 
feel free to contact Nancy Zeller at 202-885-2191.  We look forward to 
meeting you.
