Scientific Proposal Workshop
Prof. Natalie Burls of AOES organized a one-day fellowship workshop in August to help advanced undergraduate, and junior graduate students, learn how to submit successful fellowship proposals. Dr. Kathryn Ágoston, the Director of Graduate Fellowships, gave an introductory presentation and materials on the fellowship opportunities available within the field of Atmospheric Oceanic and Earth Sciences, as well as the support offered by her office at Mason. The students were then asked to identify a fellowship opportunity they qualify for and present a few slides to the group outlining the application process. The students spend the remainder of the day drafting an application timeline. The workshop was attended by more than 10 students in the atmospheric sciences and climate dynamics programs and will be held annually here after.
