The contribution of state-of-the-art science to U.S. government policy and international development throughout the second half of the 20th-century has been a critical element in reaching resolutions that reflect “good governance.” Recognizing this need, the Secretary of State has established the Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) program as a new model for engaging the American academic science communities in U.S. foreign policy and international development programming. The JSF is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, faculty from U.S. institutions of higher learning who are U.S. citizens. The application portal opens August 1, with applications due October 31.
