1999-2000 Policy Fellowships for Scientists and Engineers
The American Association for the Advancement of Science invites
applications for one-year public policy fellowships, which bring scientists
and engineers to Washington, DC, to work in the Congress and the executive
branch on domestic or international policy issues.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens and must have a Ph.D. or equivalent
doctoral level degree at the time of application from any physical,
biological, or social science or any field of engineering. Persons with a
master's degree in engineering and at least three years of post-degree
professional experience may also apply. Federal employees are not eligible
for the fellowships.
The 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. Executive branch
placements include the State Department, the Environmental Protection
Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Agriculture,
and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Stipends vary, with most in the $45,000 to $48,000 range. All applications
must be postmarked by January 15, 1999. For further information and
application instructions call 202/326-6700, fax 202/289-4950, or e-mail
