Governor's School applications ready
Arkansas Tech University is accepting applications for next summer's Arkansas Governor's School.
The deadline is Jan. 21. Governor's School is a summer session that lasts from July 5 through Aug. 1 next summer on Arkansas Tech's campus.
The university is looking for students, faculty and residential assistants during the monthlong program.
Governor's School hosts about 400 students from across the state each summer, according to a news release from the university. Students who will be high school seniors next year may apply.
"Student applicants should demonstrate the intellectual, social and emotional maturity required to thrive in an environment that emphasizes the application of theory in addressing contemporary issues," a news release said. "Students will apply in one of nine disciplines: visual art, choral music, instrumental music, drama, English/language arts, mathematics, natural science, social science or cybersecurity."

Program to key on court administration
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law and the Arkansas Administrative Office of the Courts will start a fellowship program for two law students next summer.
The selected students, who cannot be scheduled to graduate before the summer, will enroll for free in six three-day courses to become certified court managers.
Afterward, they will serve as interns in the office of a circuit court judge and court administrator, according to a news release from the university.
The State Court Partnership, between the law school and the National Center for State Courts, also will prompt the university's Career Services Office to "actively search, compile, and share job postings in court administration in state and federal courts, particularly those requiring completion of a law degree, and assist interested students in their pursuit of a career in court administration," the release states.
Court administrators do administrative and clerical work for judges.
