SOARS is a multi-year program: protégés can participate up to four summers.

Protégés will be evaluated by their mentors and staff based on their progress in research, writing and communication, as well as their professional behavior, work ethic and contributions to the SOARS community.

Protégés who wish to return the next summer must complete an Application for Continuation and provide supporting documentation.

Protégés must also complete an evaluation of the summer program and update their Online Profile by emailing any changes to the SOARS office by September 1st.


If you are interested in opportunities to return to NCAR for graduate, postdoctoral or faculty research, we encourage you to consider applying for the Advanced Study Program.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor or speaker for SOARS, please contact SOARS.

Small scholarships may also be available to alumni to participate in conferences or professional development opportunities. Please contact the program director.
