Louisiana SciComm Summit Application (Adobe Acrobat fillable form)

Once accepted, participants of the Louisiana SciComm Summit will be required to complete both a pre- and post-workshop survey and submit a draft of a project (blog, podcast, press release, video, graphic, etc.) designed to make their research more relatable to a general audience. This draft will serve as a product to work on during the Summit.
