SPE Café: Time flies when you’re having funds: the early career perspective on scholarships and fellowships
Time & Location
About the Event
Our November Science Policy Café series, this Café will examine federal funding policy from the early-career researcher perspective: that of grad students and post docs. We will explore the present funding climate and its challenges. How much are we getting, by which criteria, from which agencies, and - most importantly - is it enough?
SPE café is a casual space for our community to gather and discuss ideas and events related to science and policy. We will provide participants with questions and specific topics to chat about, and cultivate ideas and solutions around. Your input will be published on our website, and will be used to create reports to advocate for solutions created at each SPE café.
Tickets: $5.83 , includes a drink and snacks/appetizers
Premise is simple - we provide the coffee and some background info to start an open discussion where we can identify key issues, debate current policies, or brainstorm new ones! Any notes / ideas / comments / solutions will be assembled into a short report by our team after the event. You will get a copy and together we can reach out to stakeholders and decision-makers so your ideas can have an impact.
