Student Board Member: Board on Higher Education

Starts: 01-01-2023
Ends: 01-01-2026
Location: Online Opportunity


Student members on the Board of Higher Education serve as the voice of the students to help the Board improve higher education in the atmospheric sciences. The individual must be an atmospheric science, meteorology, or closely related degree seeking student through January 2024. We are seeking one undergraduate student representative and one graduate student representative. It is preferred that student members will retain student status for their entire 2-year tenure on the board. (Undergraduate students planning to transition to graduate students are acceptable for the undergraduate position.)

The weather, water, and climate enterprise is incredibly important to society. Our work requires tremendous coordination, commitment, and collaboration between tens of thousands of people, all of whom are dedicated to success.
AMS has created a structure of volunteer support for this coordination and collaboration that includes six commissions overseeing 140+ boards and committees.

The information provided in this application will be provided to the various commissioners as they begin making appointments for the committees and boards of their commission. Please note that most appointments are made in the fall for terms that begin in January, so you may not hear anything for some time after submitting this form. Also note that great effort is put into maintaining balance on committees and boards in terms of sector, discipline, etc., so you may not be used on a specific committee or board immediately.
