The Gulf Research Program of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is now accepting applications for its Science Policy Fellowship.
Fellows gain first-hand experience at the interface of science and policy as they spend one year alongside decision-makers at agencies across Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Florida. Under the guidance of a mentor, fellows learn what it takes to make scientific information not just useful, but usable.
Fellows who have completed an MA, MS, or MPH/MSPH degree or who are currently enrolled in a doctoral program will receive an annual stipend of $45,000. Fellows who have completed a PhD, ScD, EngD, MD, DrPH, or DVM will receive an annual stipend of $55,000.
Applications are due by March 6, 2019.
