Every year, the American Mathematical Society (AMS) sponsors two students to participate in the Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop, organized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The CASE Workshop introduces STEM students to the federal policy-making process, and empowers them to become advocates for basic research throughout their careers.
Selected students will each receive up to US$1600 to travel to and participate in a three-and-a-half day workshop in Washington, D.C., learning about the structure and organization of Congress, the federal budget and appropriations processes, and tools for effective science communication and civic engagement. The AMS will cover all workshop and travel costs.
Tentative dates for the next workshop are March 24-27, 2019 in Washington, D.C. Sponsored students must attend the entire workshop.
Sponsorship eligibility requirements: Students must be an AMS student member or enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate degree program in the mathematical sciences at an AMS member institution. Students from foreign countries are eligible.
How to apply: Please submit a one-page resume, a brief statement of interest (maximum 500 words), and the contact information for two references. References are not required to submit letters but should be asked for their permission to list their contact information.
TENTATIVE APPLICATION DEADLINE: 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, February 10, 2019.
