One thing to note: since the study of sleep disorders is mostly done in specialized fields, people who study it tend to be professional researchers. For example, the American Thoracic Society offers a wide selection of sleep-focused grants and scholarships. These include awards sponsored by organizations like the National Institutes of Health and The National Center on Sleep Disorder Research , and foundations such as The Francis Family Foundation and the American Sleep Medicine Foundation . However, the scholarships and grants listed by the ATS are for career scientists, doctors and other professionals who are asked to submit research proposals. In our effort to provide scholarships for the broadest pool of student candidates, we have only included awards that are reserved for people who are currently attending or planning to attend a postsecondary institution.
In an effort to modernize, Yale will no longer use the terms "freshman" and "underclassmen" and will instead adopt gender-neutral terminology, such as "first-year" and "upper-level students."

The new terminology can be found in the Undergraduate Regulations and the First-Year Handbook and is expected to appear in all Yale College's publications and communications by the start of the 2018-2019 academic year. The effort to phase out the older terminology is "a piece of a larger movement to reflect the diversity of college campuses" and also in part because the "two words in particular are gendered," according to Jennifer Keup, Director Of the National Resource for the First-Year-Experience and students in Transition.
