Jefferson Science Fellowship Program
August 30, 2017
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2018 Jefferson Science Fellowship program. Initiated by the Secretary of State in 2003, this fellowship engages the American academic science, technology, engineering and medical communities in the design and implementation of U.S. foreign policy and international development through on-site work at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The Jefferson Science Fellowship is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, academic scientists, engineers and physicians from U.S. institutions of higher learning. Applicants must hold U.S. citizenship and will be required to obtain a security clearance. For 2018, up to five Jefferson Science Fellowships will be available at the USAID. The deadline for 2018-2019 program year applications/nominations is October 31, 2017.
