AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowships, 2003-04

Scientists and engineers are invited to apply for one-year science and technology policy fellowships in Washington, DC, beginning September 2003. Fellows serve in the Congress and several executive branch agencies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of State.

These programs are designed to provide each Fellow with a unique public policy learning experience and to bring technical backgrounds and external perspectives to decision-making in the U.S. government.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and must have a Ph.D. or an equivalent doctoral degree by the application deadline (January 10, 2003) from any physical, biological or social science, any field of engineering or any relevant interdisciplinary field. Individuals with a master's degree in engineering and at least three years of post-degree professional experience also may apply. Federal employees are ineligible. Stipends begin at $56,000.
