ASM Student Science Policy Award

The American Society of Mammalogists is pleased to announce that its committee is accepting applications for the 2019 ASM Student Science Policy Award.  This award is offered in collaboration with the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS).  This award enables graduate students with an interest in both science policy and mammalogy to participate in AIBS Congressional Visits Day with travel expenses paid.  Congressional Visits Day will be held in Washington, D.C. during March 2019.  During the event, awardees will receive policy and communication training to prepare for meetings with congressional policymakers and federal agency scientists concerning research and budget priorities.  A full day will be spent on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress and their staff to discuss the importance of federal investment in the biological sciences.
