Application for ComSciCon-Cornell July 2017
Graduate students and post-doctoral researchers at Cornell University, Binghamton University, Syracuse University, SUNY-ESF, SUNY Upstate Medical University, the University of Rochester, the Rochester Institute of Technology, and other graduate degree granting institutions in Upstate New York are invited to apply for the 2017 Communicating Science Workshop! This unique professional development experience will provide attendees with a fantastic opportunity to meet young leaders in the communication of research from across the Upstate New York community, learn from and interact with a remarkable group of invited experts, and produce an original work communicating scholarly research to a new audience.

Application, registration, and attendance to the workshop is free of charge for accepted applicants, though transportation will not be provided or reimbursed. We ask that you only apply if you can attend both days of the workshop - Friday, July 14th and Saturday, July 22nd, 2017. We will ask for a $50 deposit check from each attendee; this check will be cashed only if an attendee does not show up to both days of the conference. Checks of those who attend both days will be shredded.

Applications will be evaluated solely based on responses to the writing sample prompt and the question about why you would like to attend ComSciCon-Cornell 2017. Demographic information will not be used in the selection process.
