The student should generally have at least one semester remaining in the fall of 2017 before graduating.
Consider their interest in atmospheric and related sciences, leadership potential, academic excellence, aptitude for research, and potential to gain from the experience.
Involvement in AMS chapter activities or other meteorology or dedication to other activities is considered beneficial.
What is the benefit to my department/school?
Student participants will return to the school with a greater awareness of possible career paths in the atmospheric sciences, a better understanding of the professional skills needed, and insights about graduate school. We will encourage them to share these insights with and support their peers at school.
How does the student benefit?
Students will get to explore careers in the atmospheric sciences, learn about leadership, gain professional skills, and come away with mentor relationships and a peer network that will provide support for years.
What is my department’s financial responsibility?
The academic institution must cover the cost of student travel to and from Boulder. This includes but is not limited to, airfare, baggage fees, and ground transportation.
Exceptions include Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) such as HBCUs, HSIs, and tribal colleges which will receive full transportation support for the student.
NCAR will provide accommodation, per diem for meals, and local travel while the student is attending the workshop in Boulder, Colorado.
