The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2021 Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) program. Established by the Secretary of State in 2003, this fellowship program engages the American academic science, technology, engineering, and medical communities in U.S. foreign policy and international development.
The JSF program is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, faculty from U.S. institutions of higher learning who are U.S. citizens. After successfully obtaining a security clearance, selected Fellows spend one year on assignment at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) serving as advisers on issues of foreign policy and international development. Assignments may also involve travel to U.S. embassies and missions.
The deadline for applications is October 16, 2020 at 5 PM ET. To learn more about the program and to apply, visit www.nas.edu/jsf.
The JSF program is administered by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and supported by the U.S. Department of State and USAID.
