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 one or more of the 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.
The Hellman Fellowship program has three objectives:
Meet the Academy’s current and former Hellman Fellows.
Fellowship Eligibility: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in an area of science
or engineering and have some experience or a demonstrated interest in an area related
to science and technology policy. Master’s degrees may be considered in the fields
of engineering and computer science. The Ph.D. or Master’s degree must be conferred
prior to the start of the fellowship. Strong writing and organizational skills are desired. Candidates
must be eligible to work in the United States without Academy sponsorship.
Terms: The appointment is for a one-year term (with a possibility of a one-year renewal)
