Climate Studies Diversity Project

Posted on February 20, 2017

The American Meteorological Society’s Education Program invites faculty at minority-serving colleges and universities to apply for the AMS Climate Studies Diversity Project and offer a dynamic course on the most current climate science and global change issues. AMS will select 25 minority-serving institution (MSI) faculty members to attend the expenses-paid Course Implementation Workshop in Silver Spring, MD from May 21 – 26, 2017. The application deadline is Wednesday, March 15, 2017 and workshop selections will be made by March 31. Please visit for details and send us the completed course license order form and application form if you would like to participate.

The workshop leverages the expertise of Washington, DC-area NSF, NASA, NOAA, and university climate scientists and will help prepare faculty to offer the AMS Climate Studies course. Under the Diversity Project, the license fee is waived for the first two years of course offering.

Please note that eligible MSIs include those Federally designated as well as undergraduate institutions with a 25% or greater enrollment of underrepresented minority students.

We welcome your questions concerning the project. Please call us at 202-737-1043 or e-mail
