SNHU Awards Global M.B.A. Scholarship

03.11.2008
Southern New Hampshire University Names Jennifer Allen, of Mexico City, Winner of its Go-Getters Challenge

Southern New Hampshire University’s Go-Getters Challenge, a two-month campaign to award one contestant a free Global M.B.A., named Jennifer Allen, of Mexico City, Mexico, its winner.

Allen was selected among three finalists, who appeared live on “FOX25 Morning News” Oct. 27. Each contestant had one minute to explain how an SNHU Global M.B.A. would impact their life. Viewers then voted online and a panel of SNHU judges determined the final winner.

“I am absolutely thrilled that I have been chosen as the winner of the Go-Getter Challenge. This has been a truly incredible experience. I am so thankful for this opportunity to finally be able to further my education through the Global M.B.A. from SNHU,” said Allen. “I am confident that the tools and skills that I will learn will be directly applied to my work as a manager in a nonprofit organization in Mexico City, Mexico.
I plan on then sharing successful strategies for economic sustainability worldwide through consulting. Most of all, I know that this scholarship will enable me to empower others. I will be transformed through this experience and know many others will be also.”

The campaign was unveiled on the “FOX25 Morning News’” Sept. 16 broadcast. Contestants were required to write a 500-word essay explaining how a Global M.B.A. would impact their lives. SNHU staff and faculty members served as judges and selected six semi-finalists. On-campus interviews followed and the field was then narrowed to three. The campaign generated over 1 million online impressions and candidates from seven states and Mexico took part in the Challenge.

“The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives of those around them, but perhaps hasn’t had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education,” says SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. “Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible.”

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
