Donating to ComSciCon

ComSciCon is a not-for-profit workshop series on science communication organized by graduate students, for graduate students.  Our mission is to prepare early career scientists to become ambassadors for their fields, communicating complex and technical topics through multiple media to diverse audiences including their peers, scientists in other fields, students, and the general public.

Since 2012, ComSciCon's passionate volunteer team has worked tirelessly to create unique, career accelerating leadership and professional development experiences for graduate students across the US and Canada.  Our annual flagship workshop and our many spinoff events serve hundreds of graduate students every year.  And with your help and your support, we can ensure that our programs are always offered free of charge to every student who attend, with funds provided for their travel so that everyone is supported to attend.
