Now accepting applications for the 2018 visit!
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is looking for up to six undergrads or graduate students to accompany UCAR leadership to Washington D.C. June 11-13, 2018. Members of the UCAR Board of Trustees and the UCAR President' Advisory Committee on University Relations will be your hosts and guides for the unique opportunity.
In Washington, you will have the chance to visit Capitol Hill and meet members of Congress and their staffs and attend a special briefing by Hill staffers on how Congress works. You will also sit in on briefings from senior leadership in areas of weather, water, and climate.
If your essay is selected, UCAR will cover round-trip travel expenses from your location to Washington (flight, three nights hotel and per diem for meals and incidental expenses).
