Student workshop attendance support

CEDAR supports many students to attend the CEDAR workshop. 

For students enrolled in a US institution and traveling from a location within the United States, financial support will consist of roundtrip travel to the CEDAR workshop venue and housing.

Individual Workshops

Individual Workshops are 1 year efforts focused on a specific topic and the associated science questions. Most workshops are 1 year efforts.

Grand Challenge (GC) Workshops

Grand Challenge (GC) workshop addresses urgent, overarching questions which require a multiyear effort and are of high importance to the CEDAR community. GC workshops are 3 year efforts and should be organized by a diverse team of conveners with a clear schedule and specific goals and topics for the 3 years. Each GC workshop will introduce the topic to the CEDAR community in the plenary session in the first year and provide updates in the 2nd & 3rd, and a summary after year 3. 

Each year one new grand challenge workshop is selected by the CEDAR Science Steering Committee. List of Grand challenge workshops.
