AGU sponsors one student member to attend the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in Washington, D.C. The spring workshop teaches students about Congress, the federal budget, and science communication during the three day course. It also enables students to see the process up close, network with science policy professionals, and to collaborate with other students who are interested in similar issues. This year’s workshop will be held 25-27 March 2019.
Application deadline is 11:59pm Pacific Time on Sunday, 10 February 2019.
We are particularly seeking students with strong interest but limited experience and knowledge of science policy and advocacy, and who demonstrate strong communication and leadership skills.
To be eligible for AGU sponsorship, students must be current AGU student members, and be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate (upper-class) or graduate degree program (including double majors) in an AGU science. Students from foreign countries are eligible if they are studying in the U.S.
Applicants will need to be able to attend the workshop in Washington, D.C. from 25-27 March, 2019. AGU will cover all workshop and travel costs.
Finalists will be notified via email and/or cell phone between 11-14 February 2018. Finalists will need to confirm their acceptance by Monday, 18 February 2018 or they will lose their place.
