Each semester, students in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences and its units receive awards and scholarships that make a direct differenence in their education and acknowledge the hard work they put toward their education day in and day out. These awards come from a variety of sources: directors' funds, generous donors, and trusts to name a few. We hold semesterly award ceremonies leading up to convocation to celebrate these students and their work.
Our A&GS Outreach mission is to inspire and educate K-12 students and the public regarding the atmospheric and geographic sciences and aviation. We are committed to providing outreach, education, and speakers that are dedicated to instilling passion and understanding in our STEM community.
To learn more about outreach events coming directly from the National Weather Center, or to schedule a tour, visit the NWC website.
If you are interested in having the College attend your career fair, STEM event, or other educational function, or would like someone from the College to speak to a class, contact Outreach Coordinator Jessica Cavin for more information.
