Accepting Applications through Sept. 5: Mirzayan Graduate Fellowship Program

Applications are now being accepted for the January 2014 session of the Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program. The program, now in its 16th year, provides early career individuals with the opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the National Academies in Washington, DC learning about science and technology policy and the role that scientists and engineers play in advising the nation.
Each year, applicants from around the world become part of a National Academies committee, board, or unit where they are assigned to a mentor and learn about the world of science and technology policy. An immersive experience, the program is designed to broaden fellows’ appreciation of employment opportunities outside academia and leave them with both a firm grasp of the important and dynamic role of science and technology in decision-making and a better understanding of the role that they can play in strengthening the science and technology enterprise for the betterment of mankind.
Applications are due on September 5, 2013. Selections will be made in late October 2013.
