AGU-sponsored CASE workshop

Each year, AGU sponsors one student member to attend the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in Washington, D.C.

The workshop, held each spring, teaches students about Congress, the federal budget, and science communication during a three-day course. It also allows students to see the process up close, network with science policy professionals, and collaborate with other students who are interested in similar issues.

The 7th annual workshop is pending for 2021. Stay tuned for details.

  • We are seeking students with strong interest in, but limited experience and knowledge of, science policy and advocacy, who also demonstrate strong communication and leadership skills.

  • Eligibility: Applicants must be current AGU student members and enrolled fulltime in an undergraduate (upper-class) or graduate degree program for Earth or space science. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible if they are studying in the U.S.
