Opportunity Type: Fellowship
Application Deadline: December 15, 2017
Description: SRCD Fellows are members of the Science and Technology Fellowship Programs of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which includes Fellows from a variety of scientific disciplines. Following a two-week science policy orientation program sponsored by AAAS, as well as a brief orientation to child development and public policy sponsored by SRCD, Fellows begin work as resident scholars within their Federal agency or Congressional office placements. The Fellowships are full-time immersion experiences and run from September 1st through August 31st. Executive Branch Fellowships may be renewed for one year at the agency's discretion and, under rare circumstances, Congressional Fellowships may be extended four months to the end of the legislative session. Staff in the SRCD Office for Policy and Communications in Washington work to facilitate the Fellows' experience and are available as a resource throughout the year.
SRCD hosts monthly seminars for its Fellows, with diverse topics in child development and public policy, as well as career development. In addition, AAAS provides extensive career development programming (e.g., writing a resume, communicating science) and social events.
