Description:
Established by the Secretary of State in 2003, the Jefferson Science Fellows program engages the American academic science, technology, engineering, and medical communities in U.S. foreign policy and international development.

The fellowship is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, faculty from U.S. institutions of higher learning who are U.S. citizens.

After successfully obtaining a security clearance, selected Fellows spend one year on assignment at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) serving as advisers on issues of foreign policy and international development. Assignments are tailored to the needs of the hosting office, while taking into account the Fellows' interests and areas of expertise. Following the fellowship year, Fellows will return to their academic career but remain available to the U.S. government as experienced consultants for short-term projects.
