Hive managing editor Heidi Waite has recently awarded a Katherine S. McCarter Graduate Student Policy Award!
Katherine S. McCarter Graduate Student Policy Award gives graduate students hands-on training and science policy experience. As part of the program, graduate students get training on communicating with congressional decision makers and then get to apply that during Congressional Day Visits in DC (virtually this year).
Heidi says, ” I’m excited to apply my scicomm skills in a new arena – the science policy world! I’m really interested in the intersection between science, policy, and communication. This is the perfect opportunity to explore and gain skills that will propel me in the direction of a career in science policy.”
