State Department Science Fellowship Program

see notice $75,000

Most of the foreign policy issues faced by the U.S. Department of State have a scientific or technical component. This fellowship is intended to enhance the S&T capacity of the department by enabling at least one scientist annually to work at the department’s Washington, DC headquarters for a one-year term. This is a unique opportunity for a scientist to contribute scientific and technical expertise to the department and raise awareness of the value of scientific input. In turn, scientists broaden their experience by interacting with policymakers in the federal government and learning about the foreign policy process.
