Dear CE grad and undergrad students,
This email is about the Grand Challenges Impact Lab (GCIL), a 10-week UW study abroad program in Bangalore, India, offered in the Winter Quarter through CE. For CE seniors, GCIL fulfills multiple graduation requirements, including the capstone requirement.
There is of course tremendous uncertainty surrounding Covid, in the US and abroad. The recent Covid spike in India peaked in early May and since then has come down dramatically, nationwide and in Bangalore. We do not know what the future holds, but UW is allowing Study Abroad classes to move forward at this time; we are doing so, while also monitoring the situation closely. (GCIL is well connected and in regular contact with partners on the ground in India, including multiple groups working in public health; the GCIL Assistant Director, Dr. Deborah Havens (who is with the GCIL program for the entire 10 weeks in Bangalore), is a medical doctor and a public health researcher.)
If you may be interested in this program, please see the information below, including info sessions, an email list, social media, and more. The application deadline is September 1. If you apply, you can decide later whether you wish to attend.
Deborah and I are happy to answer any questions you or your family may have!

Applications now open: Advanced Experience Program (AXP) – Science Policy Analysis Track & Tech Due Diligence Track
The Advanced Experience Program (AXP), created with generous support from the Mark Torrance Foundation, enables UW doctoral students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to apply their knowledge to support decision makers in cleantech investing and clean energy policy.
AXP is designed to be a flexible time commitment to complement each student’s Ph.D. training and longer-term professional development at the UW. There are two tracks that comprise AXP: (1) Tech Due Diligence Track and (2) Science Policy Analysis Track. The time commitment for each track is approximately 20 hours (not including a final writeup which is typically a two-page contribution to a larger investment or policy document). Participants will receive a $1,000 honorarium after both their 20-hour time commitment and final writeup are complete. Continue reading
