17 April 2020
By Lexi Shultz, AGU Vice President, Public Affairs The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on lives and communities around the world. At the same time, it has also upended scientific work and research. Not only are many labs, facilities and field sites suddenly out of reach, but the uncertainty of when campuses might reopen has led to STEM workforce reductions. In many cases, students and early career scientists are …

Last October, AGU kicked off the Austin Student Travel Grant Challenge, a historic campaign intended to grow AGU’s capacity to support student travel to meetings. Scientist and AGU Development Board member Jamie Austin pledged to match all donations made by AGU membership and …

AGU Awards Over $500,000 in Funds to Support Outreach and Engagement Activities in Earth and Space Science
To mark our Centennial year, AGU initiated the Celebrate 100 grants program in the latter part of 2018. Centennial is about you and the science that you undertake every day. It is about inspiring all to participate, support, and advance the power of science to make the world a better place for us and for future generations. As I noted in an earlier post, these grants are available to AGU …

My story is not the usual one. For a while, “party crasher” was my so-called handle throughout the AGU community. As a naïve second year graduate student, I inadvertently crashed the newly elected AGU Council President’s gathering. Not a recommendation by any means but, in my case, it turned out to be a rare opportunity to meet extraordinary individuals who not only saw my potential but also helped shape who …

Inspire the Next Generation of Earth and Space Scientists: Support the Austin Endowment for Student Travel
A new year is just around the corner. And with it comes the promise of new beginnings and opportunities for personal and professional growth. 2019 is also AGU’s Centennial year – a time for our community to celebrate the scientific advances made in Earth and space science over the past 100 years. For me, the advent of Centennial leads me to consider how we can make sure that our science …

With the beginning of AGU’s Centennial upon us, I am so pleased and excited to announce the first two awardees of AGU’s Celebrate 100 Grants.

I recently made a one million dollar matching challenge grant to support AGU’s Fall Meeting Student Travel Grants and hope that you will join me in support of this program. As humanity and the planet face ever more daunting challenges, science is under attack and facts are shrugged off, the evidence-based solutions that the geosciences provide are now more important than ever. I believe it is incumbent upon us ― …

11 October 2011 You can hardly pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV nowadays without seeing a story on the impacts of the debt crisis in America (and around the world). Unfortunately, the proposed solutions rarely seem to include strategic investments in science and research. This is particularly troubling because we know that federal investments in science have a long and storied history of creating jobs and stimulating …
