American Meteorological Society Summer Policy Colloquium

Each year, the AMS Summer Policy Colloquium brings a select group to Washington, D.C. for an intense, ten-day immersion in science policy. Graduate students, faculty and professionals in the field of atmospheric sciences and their applications form a cohort that tackles hands-on exercises, hears from dozens of prominent experts and forges strong professional networking connections. The Summer Policy Colloquium is a career-shaping experience. By arming tomorrow’s leaders with expertise in the policy process, the science community will be more engaged with decision makers, helping ensure that society’s policy choices take full advantage of available scientific knowledge.

Who can attend? Mid-level federal managers and scientists, mid-level private-sector executives, university faculty, selected graduate students and postdoctoral fellows of demonstrated scientific and leadership potential.
