Shadow Day 2021
The University of Rochester Brain Awareness Campaign (BAC) is holding our fifth annual Brain Bee for high school students, virtually on Saturday January 30th 2021. The Brain Bee is a competition for students who want to represent their schools and challenge themselves to learn about the science of the brain. These competitions are sponsored by the international Society for Neuroscience, and thousands of students around the world will compete locally to be their region’s champion. Our previous winners include students from Pittsford-Mendon High School and Brighton High School. This friendly competition will cover topics such as anatomy, memory, sensory systems, sleep, neurodegenerative diseases, and addiction. Here are some details about the Brain Bee:
The Brain Bee is free for all high school students and will be hosted by the University of Rochester virtually, on January 30th 2021, from 9:30am-11:30am.
The Brain Bee will be judged by a panel of neuroscientists, including at least two professors from the University of Rochester.
The winner of the Rochester Brain Bee will represent us at the National Brain Bee competition. The format of Nationals is currently TBD. It will either be hosted in Northeast Ohio Medical University (roundtrip airfare and hotel paid for by BAC) or it will be hosted virtually.
Students can practice for the Brain Bee by reviewing the material in the book Brain Facts (free to download at http://www.brainfacts.org/

NYS DREAM Act Application is Open
- The link to the NYS DREAM application is found at hesc.ny.gov/dream.
- The Senator Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act gives undocumented and other students access to New York State‐administered grants and scholarships that support their higher education costs.

Get Your FSA ID Ahead of Completing the FAFSA
- FSA IDs are created at fsaid.ed.gov.
- Each student and one parent need FSA IDs to electronically sign and submit the FAFSA. Students taking federal student loans will also need their FSA ID to sign for any federal student loans they decide to take.
- Although students and parents can get an FSA ID while filling out the FAFSA, tell them that getting it ahead of time will make the entire process much smoother.
- Students and parents must create their own FSA IDs with their own personal information. Each FSA ID is for the exclusive use of that individual and cannot be shared.
- An FSA ID cannot be created by any individual on behalf of someone else, including a family member.
- The student and parent's information at the Social Security Administration (SSA) must be correct or corrected before getting an FSA ID. Visit SSA at www.ssa.gov to learn how to correct any errors.

- Helpful FAFSA features include the Internal Revenue ServicesData Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) that enables students and their parents to electronically transfer their 2019 tax return information when completing the FAFSA.
- Encourage your students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to meet college deadlines and maximize their financial aid. Many colleges use FAFSA information to calculate amounts and types of aid students may qualify for, and each college has its own schedule for awarding financial aid.
