Nominate students by April 15 for NCAR Undergraduate Leadership Workshop

April 13, 2017

The July 9-15 NCAR Undergraduate Leadership Workshop in Boulder gives upper-division college students a chance to explore careers in the atmospheric sciences; meet with NCAR scientists, grad students, and private-sector professionals; and connect with peers from around the nation. Areas of scientific focus include weather research, forecasting, climate modeling, solar dynamics, and societal impacts of severe weather and of climate change. Professional development includes advice on résumés and elevator speeches.

Each university or college department may nominate one student for the workshop. NCAR|UCAR provides lodging and meals, and the department provides student travel to Boulder, Colorado. Additional travel support may be provided to Minority Serving Institutions. The nomination and application deadline is April 15. For additional details, see Undergraduate Leadership Workshop.

Evaluations of the program, now in its 15th year, have found multiple long-term benefits. In addition to sharing this call for nominations with colleagues, we invite you to share information on successful outcomes of the workshop via this early online release from the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, “Long-term Impacts of a Career Development Workshop for Undergraduates.”
