American Academy of Arts and Sciences: Hellman Science and Technology Fellowship

As part of the Academy's Initiative for Science, Engineering, and Technology, the Hellman Fellowship in Science and Technology Policy provides an opportunity for an early-career professional with training in science or engineering to learn about a career in public policy and administration. While in residence, Hellman Fellows work with senior scientists and policy experts on critical national and international policy issues related to science, engineering, and technology.

Hellman Fellows contribute to new and ongoing projects under the Academy's Initiative for Science, Engineering, and Technology. The studies explore how science and technology are evolving, how to help the public understand those changes, and how society can better adapt to those changes. The Initiative convenes leading scientists and public policy experts from both academia and industry to advance critical thinking about the evolving landscape for scientific research.
