Upper-class undergraduate & graduate students: Join us for a three-and-a-half-day program in DC to learn about Congress, the federal budget process, and effective science communication. Students will have an opportunity to meet with their Members of Congress or congressional staff.
Info for Institutions
The CASE Workshop 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. In addition, staff at sponsoring universities and professional societies are responsible for scheduling visits to Capitol Hill, and are encouraged to accompany participating students during those visits.
This will be the fourth year for the CASE Workshop. The first three years were a great success; to read the reactions from the students who participated in the inaugural event, read this AAAS story .

Deadline is February 20, 2017; space is limited and is first-come, first-served.
