The Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), a NOAA RISA Team, invites undergraduate students from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana to participate in a 5-day, all-expenses-paid summer school program designed to introduce students to the topic of climate adaptation. The academy will connect students with professionals in fields such as meteorology, climate science, geography, and environmental sustainability, and public administration.
Throughout the Summer Academy, students will hear from a variety of speakers on topics including but not limited to: climate-related hazards in the South-Central U.S.; social factors and equity in climate adaptation, climate policy, administrative authorities and their responsibilities, and planning and development skills. Additionally, students will learn about disciplines involved in climate adaptation and have the opportunity to engage with professionals who can help provide direction for those interested in pursuing a career in climate adaptation or a related field. The academy will take place from June 6-10th at the University of Oklahoma, in Norman, OK. Eligible applicants should submit applications by March 6, 2022.
