Mass Media Fellowship
Each year, AGU sponsors one university student in the AAAS Mass Media Fellowship program, which provides a 10-week summer internship at a newspaper, magazine, broadcast or cable news department, or web site.
Congressional Science Fellowship
The Congressional Science Fellowship program places highly qualified, accomplished scientists, engineers, and other professionals in the offices of either an individual Member of Congress or on a committee for a one-year assignment.
Congressional Visits Days
AGU co-sponsors four annual Congressional Visits Days (CVD), providing an opportunity for our members to meet with their legislators in Washington, DC, or at home. During the visits, participants discuss the importance of federally funded science research as well as their own research.
AGU sponsors two student members to attend the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in Washington, D.C. The spring workshop teaches students about congress, the federal budget, and science communication during the three day course. It also enables students to see the process up close, network with science policy professionals, and to collaborate with other students who are interested in similar issues.
