The Carson Scholars Program is dedicated to training the next generation of environmental researchers in the art of public communication. Throughout the scholarship year, Carson Scholars work closely with faculty mentors who provide hands-on training and other resources to develop skills and strategies to effectively convey the value of their research and enhance their skills in communicating science to a variety of audiences. The Scholars then put their training to work, completing a video, exhibit, public presentation, website, blog, or other communication project by the end of the year.

Applications for Spring 2020 will be out Fall of 2019!
