University Program on Science Policy and Advocacy - 17–20 April 2016

A coalition of scientific and engineering societies, universities, and academic organizations has created an exciting opportunity for upper-class undergraduate and graduate students in science, mathematics, and engineering disciplines to learn about science policy and advocacy. The Catalyzing Advocacy for Science and Engineering (CASE) program is open to universities or professional scientific or engineering societies that would like to provide an opportunity for their students to come to Washington, DC, and learn about science policy.

Students who are selected by their institution to participate in the workshop will spend a few days learning about the structure and organization of Congress, the federal budget and appropriations process, and tools for effective science communication and civic engagement.

Sponsoring institutions may send one to two students and are responsible for a $125 registration fee per student, as well as all associated travel and lodging costs. For additional details about the CASE Workshop, go to

The deadline is 12 February 2016. Space is limited and is first-come, first-served.
