From scholarships to meeting and networking opportunties, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) can help foster your growing contribution to the weather, water, and climate community.
The AMS Board for Private Sector Meteorologists has designed this mentorship program to create and foster one-on-one personal interactions between mentors employed in the private sector and students interested in working in the private sector.
Run by the Division of Marine and Large Programs, Lamont–Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, STEMSEAS aims to provide ship-based, 6–10 day exploratory experiences for undergraduates from diverse backgrounds aboard NSF-funded research vessels. Students will sail with experienced faculty mentors and engage in geoscience and oceanography activities (while also having fun)! Find out more, including a schedule of programs, and apply at http://mlp.ldeo.columbia.edu/stemseas/.
As a mentor, you will be paired with a high school student whom you will check-in with weekly through text, phone or email. During these check-ins, using our grade-level timelines, you can guide your mentee step-by-step through the college process. Your support will ensure your mentee reaches their college dreams!
AMS Student Membership is open to any student, undergraduate or graduate, enrolled at least half-time at an accredited institution of higher learning.
