*Claire McKay Bowen, Los Alamos National Laboratory 

Keywords: grant writing, scholarships, scientific communication

Global government funding for education and STEM has steadily decreased (accounting for inflation) as associated costs have risen. In order to obtain available funds or program opportunities, excellent verbal and written communication is key to a successful career in STEM. In this talk, I’ll provide tips and advice for undergraduate and graduate students applying for scholarships and other professional development programs. Additionally, students will learn essential skills in pitching themselves and their projects; transferable skills for their future careers.
