Catalyzing Advocacy for Science and Engineering (CASE)
This is a nomination process, as Cornell can send only 1-4 candidates. Last year two BESTies were selected to attend. The Graduate School is coordinating the nominations, but we wanted to make you aware of the potential selective opportunity, as many BESTies are interested in Science Policy. Details forthcoming to describe the nomination process.
A coalition of scientific and engineering societies, universities, advocacy organizations, 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 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.
Cornell may send one to two students and will cover the registration fee as well as all associated travel and lodging costs. In addition, Cornell schedules visits to Capitol Hill, and is encouraged to accompany participating students during those visits.
