The AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop in Washington, D.C. is taking place on March 24-27, 2019. This workshop is a great opportunity for graduate students in STEM disciplines to learn about science policy and advocacy.

All travel and lodging will be covered, as well as the workshop registration fee.
