Fall 2020 Science, Policy, Engagement

The Science, Policy, and Engagement Cohort:
Building an Enduring Grassroots Constituency for Science

Application period is CLOSED

AGU has been awarded a grant from The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to develop a new project, “
Building an Enduring Grassroots Constituency for Science,” that will create science-community partnerships in eight communities across the United States*. Communities selected for the 2020 Science, Policy, and Engagement Cohort will work collaboratively with a Community Science Fellow and AGU scientists. They will participate in community outreach and engagement activities, such as addressing public audiences, media, and decision makers, on behalf of their communities.


Getting Started

Please use the form below to provide us with baseline information about your U.S.-based* community. If you’re interested in participating but don’t know where to start or aren’t sure that your idea is ready for prime time, please contact us by email at [email protected] or by phone (202.777.7304) and we’ll talk it through with you. Please know that your project idea does NOT need to be fully fleshed out- this is something you’ll do in partnership with your Fellow! Once we hear from you, a Thriving Earth Exchange staff member will contact you to discuss your project idea in more detail and next steps.

*Community submissions outside of the United States are not currently accepted through this form. For more information about Thriving Earth Exchange’s international partnership and community science activities, please email us at [email protected].

Prior to engaging with Thriving Earth Exchange, all communities are asked to read and consent to two documents. Should you have any questions regarding these documents or their contents, please don’t hesitate to contact [email protected].
