AAAS Leshner Leadership Fellowship

September 12th, 2016

Application submission is open until November 1, 2016 for the AAAS Leshner Leadership Institute for Public Engagement Fellowship. This opportunity convenes mid-career scientists who demonstrate leadership not only in their research careers but also in promoting meaningful dialogue between science and society.

The 2017-18 Fellows cohort will be composed of infectious disease researchers. The selected Fellows will spend five days in Washington, D.C. for training and networking in June 2017, and then use their fellowship year actively participating in interactions with the public on infectious disease-related issues to promote meaningful dialogue.
