Education and Outreach

 
Undergraduate, Graduate, Postgraduate & Beyond

UCAR's higher education programs offer scientific expertise, specialized materials, access to data and computers, and on-site research experiences. Other programs provide special opportunities for scientists to enhance or focus their careers and for weather forecasters to develop their skills.

UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE

ASP Graduate Fellowship Program
Supporting University Ph.D. thesis research conducted in collaboration with NCAR scientists

Cray Classroom Grants Program
Student access to NCAR's high-performance computers

Climate and Global Change Geoscience Education Workshop
The goal of the workshop is to provide standards-relevant science content, training on easy to implement inquiry-based classroom activities, and a broad overview of the geosciences in the context of climate and global change to educator-leaders who are teaching sciences at the middle and high school levels.

Cooperative Program for Operational Meterology, Education and Training (COMET)
A UCAR/UOP program that provides both residence and online training opportunities for meteorologists and users of weather information. Other activities include fostering collaboration between the research and operational communities with an emphasis on facilitating the transfer of scientific knowledge aimed at improving weather forecasts and increased understanding of atmospheric processes.
