Event Overview

The National Astronomy Consortium (NAC) student program features a cohort-based, year-long student research experience for undergrads. The NAC program is designed to broaden participation in 'full-spectrum' astronomy for underrepresented and under-served students. Our NAC students spend their summers at one of our partner sites, working with mentors on a research project, and forming bonds with their fellow cohort members.

The NAC VII meeting is a key component of the NAC experience, and is designed to bring the current year's cohort of students together to:

  • share their research with their peers, the NAC mentors, and invited guests
  • meet with influential professionals in the field of astronomy, including scientists, program managers from important national funding agencies, and representatives from observatories and professional organizations
  • strengthen peer, mentor, and professional relationships

This year, the NAC VI workshop will feature:

  • A networking reception¬†
  • 2019 NAC VII Cohort presentations
  • "Alumni Voices" featuring NAC Alums
  • and more...
