A series of informational webinars about American Association for the Advancement of Science fellowships is underway.
The webinars are to brief university faculty who might be interested in one of AAAS’s Science and Technology Policy Fellowships.These are yearlong fellowships in Washington, D.C., for scientists and engineers to learn about and participate in the policymaking process in the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government.
The next webinar is scheduled July 16 at 1 p.m. CST. Titled “Let’s Talk About the Program Areas,” this session will feature information for faculty members who are interested in pursuing this program on leave from their universities.

Additional webinars are scheduled Aug. 20, Sept. 16 and Oct. 15. Registration is available at the website.
