Roger Revelle Fellowships in Global Stewardship
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Science and Technology Policy Fellowships, Roger Revelle Fellowship in Global Stewardship
Published: Wednesday, December 01, 2004
The Revelle Fellow will work for one year, beginning in September 2005, in the congress, an executive branch agency, or elsewhere in the Washington, DC, policy community on domestic or international environmental issues encompassed under the umbrella of "global stewardship." The focus will be on human interaction with ecosystems, which includes, but is not limited to, population, sustainable development, food, oceans, global climate change, and related environmental concerns. The program includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations and a yearlong seminar program on issues involving science, technology, and public policy.
The fellowship is designed to provide a unique public policy learning experience; to demonstrate the value of science and technology in addressing important societal problems; and to make practical contributions to the more effective use of scientific and technical knowledge in governmental decision-making.
The fellowship provides the opportunity to work in either the legislative or executive branch, or in non-governmental organization within the environmental policy community. Placement will be arranged with the assistance of AAAS, and will reflect the Fellow's interests and expertise.
