About the program

It can be difficult for those just beginning a scientific career to find support for engaging in science communication and outreach. The Sharing Science Mentorship program, available each year at AGU’s Fall Meeting, connects graduate students with established scientists and communication professionals who are also enthusiastic about and engaged in sharing science with public audiences. Mentors are matched with mentees before the meeting based on mentor expertise and mentee goals. At the meeting, mentors/mentee pairs attend a meetup with others to discuss all things science communication including experiences, best practices, and future efforts. Matches are encouraged to stay in touch after the meeting.
