The Jefferson Science Fellowship: an impactful opportunity to apply science to policy .

The Jefferson Science Fellowship program was developed in 2003 by the U.S. Department of State and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to engage American academic science, technology, engineering, and medical communities in U.S. foreign policy and international development. Fellows in the program are placed in offices at either the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The program is open to tenured faculty from U.S. institutions who are also U.S. citizens. Fellows spend one year serving as analysts or policy advisers on issues related to foreign policy and international development. Fellows are provided with a stipend for living expenses while working in Washington, D.C.; however, the home institution is expected to provide salary. While Fellows are generally expected to spend the year in Washington, D.C., opportunities are developing for remote work plans. Following the fellowship year, Fellows are expected to remain available as experienced consultants for short-term projects, which provides an excellent opportunity for expanded research, teaching, and broader impacts of university work.
