Congratulations Alison Brennan
Doctoral student in Developmental Science, who was selected to attend "Making our CASE: Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering” in Washington, DC.:
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 Making our CASE program is open to universities or professional scientific or engineering societies that would like to provide an opportunity for their graduate 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.
