On Monday, May 1, 2017, the application will open for The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program. Graduate and professional school students and those who have completed graduate studies within the last five years are eligible to apply.
The Program provides Fellows with the opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the National Academies in Washington, DC learning about science and technology policy and the role that the scientific, engineering, and medical communities play in advising the nation.
Each year, applicants from around the world become part of an 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 of traditional academic careers, expand their ability to incorporate S&T policy in academia, and provide them with a firm grasp of the important and dynamic role of science and technology in government decision-making as well as with a better understanding of the role that they can play in strengthening the science and technology enterprise for the betterment of mankind.
