2024 CASE Workshop: Application Deadline

This April, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) hosts its Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop in person in Washington, DC. The workshop is an exciting opportunity for graduate students to learn about science policy and advocacy. The University of Virginia regularly participates as an institutional sponsor, with the goal of enabling a small cohort of graduate students to attend this entry-level workshop every year.

Selected students participate in the 3.5-day program in Washington, DC, and learn about the structure and organization of Congress, the federal budget and appropriations processes, and tools for effective science communication and civic engagement. In addition, students will participate in interactive seminars about policy making and communication.

The registration fees and travel expenses will be covered through the PhD Plus program. An internal review process will select the University’s participants. Click here to learn more about the eligibility requirements and review submission guidelines.
