CASE Workshop:
Catalyzing Advocacy for Science and Engineering
March 18-21, 2018
AAAS Headquarters, Washington, D.C.

Now Accepting Applications From AAAS Student Members
DEADLINE: Jan. 26, 2018

The AAAS Office of Government Relations is now accepting applications for the 2018 CASE Workshop.

Catalyzing Advocacy for Science and Engineering, or CASE, is an entry-level program organized to educate graduate students who are interested in learning about the role of science in policymaking and the federal policymaking process and to empower them with ways to become a voice for basic research. The application is open to AAAS members who are current graduate students studying science, technology, engineering or math at a U.S. university but have limited experience or knowledge of science policy and advocacy.

This three-and-a-half-day program will take place in Washington, D.C., March 18-21, 2018,and AAAS will sponsor up to four students to participate alongside students who are supported by one of our 2018 sponsoring institutions. At the workshop, participants will gain knowledge of the structure and organization of Congress and the federal budget and appropriations process, learn how to use tools for effective science communication and civic engagement, and participate in interactive seminars about policymaking and communication. On Wednesday, March 21, students will have the option to meet with their elected members of Congress or congressional staff on Capitol Hill.

AAAS will cover all travel costs, including transportation and lodging, as well as the registration fee for the selected students.

The application is available now at caseapplication.aaas.org. On the application, you’ll tell us why you are interested in learning about science policy — in 500 words or less — and upload a copy of your resume or CV.

The DEADLINE for applications is Jan. 26, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. EST. For additional details about the CASE Workshop, please go to www.aaas.org/case. Any additional questions may be directed to Joanne Carney (jcarney@aaas.org).
