Hi folks,
Just wanted to share this opportunity to apply your science in a
decision-making context. The deadline is short (April 20) and different
from what's posted on the program's web site:

Please contact the program directly for additional information.

*Science Outside the Lab: Urban Resilience to Extremes
<https://cspo.org/program/science-outside-the-lab/> (SOtL UREx)*, presented
by Arizona State University’s Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes
(CSPO), explores the relationships among science, policy, and societal
outcomes in a place where many important decisions about these things are
made—Washington, DC. During this one week workshop students will gain
exposure to federal government perspectives on challenges faced at the
local level, including federal emergency response to extreme
events/disasters, responsibility and opportunity for transformative change
in a new climate reality, and issues of equity including emergency
responses within U.S. territories and foreign aid. Doctoral students who
are interested in how the decisions about science funding, regulation, and
policy will benefit from this program.

SOtL UREx anticipates funding up to 14 graduate students with amounts up to
$2,000 per applicant to support lodging, city transportation, museum
entries, breakfast and lunch; this funding is not inclusive of travel to
the experience or dinners. UREx fellows who are selected for the program
will be reimbursed for airfare and a moderate allowance for other expenses.
The same funds are available for one teaching assistant (TA) position for a
postdoc or alumni. Applications that advance cross-cutting questions and
synthesis of policy, science, and social equity will be prioritized.

Student Applications should be sent to Andra Williams (
andra.williams at asu.edu) by *Friday, April 20, 2018*. Successful student
applicants must confirm acceptance of the offer by Monday, May 7, 2018.
