Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship ProgramOctober 6, 2005
This Graduate Fellowship Program of the National Academies-consisting of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council-is designed to engage graduate and postdoctoral students in science and technology policy and to familiarize them with the interactions among science, technology, and government. As a result, students in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, veterinary medicine, business, and law develop essential skills different from those attained in academia, which will help them make the transition from being a graduate student to a professional.
We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2006 sessions. The program will comprise three 10-week sessions:
Winter: January 9-March 17
Summer: June 5-August 11
Fall: September 11-November 17
To apply, candidates should submit an application and request that a mentor/adviser fill out a reference form. Both forms are available on the Web.
The deadline for receipt of application material is November 1 for the winter program, March 1 for the summer program, and June 1 for the fall program. Candidates may apply to all three programs concurrently.
Additional details about the program and a link to join the mailing list are available on the Web site. Questions should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
