Tech Scholarship offered!

2 07 2014

The Mirzayan Fellowship Program Office is pleased to announce that the National Academies is accepting applications for the January 2015 session of the Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program.

The online application is available at:

http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/policyfellows/index.htm

We encourage you to share this information with qualified individuals.

The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program is designed to engage early career individuals in the analytical processes that inform U.S. science and technology policy. Fellows obtain the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in science and technology policy at the federal, state, or local levels. Fellows 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. Each fellow is assigned to a senior staff member who acts as his or her mentor. The mentor provides guidance and ensures that the fellow’s time is focused on substantive projects and activities within the fellow’s assigned unit. 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.
