The DISsertations initiative for the advancement of Climate Change 
ReSearch (DISCCRS, pronounced /discourse/) hosts symposia for 
early-career climate change researchers. Our goal is to catalyze 
international, interdisciplinary collegial networks and foster 
collaborative interdisciplinary research and dynamic interactions 
between science and society to enable us to better understand and 
respond to the myriad challenges posed by climate change.

During the weeklong symposium, 30 competitively selected recent Ph.D. 
graduates will share their research, engage in discussions with peers, 
mentors, and funding agency representatives, and hone their teambuilding 
and communication skills. Most importantly, scholars will depart from 
the symposium with a collegial peer network that extends across the full 
range of climate science. For an overview of recent symposium scholars, 


*Eligibility:*Ph.D. requirements completed between September 1, 2010 - 
February 28, 2013 in any field. Applicants should be conducting research 
relevant to the study of climate change, its impacts, or its societal 
implications. We encourage applicants from the biological, physical, and 
social sciences, mathematics, engineering, and other fields. While U.S. 
citizens and residents have preference, somefunds are available for 
non-U.S. participants.
