Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowships

More than twenty professional scientific and engineering societies will be sponsoring or cosponsoring Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows in 1997-98, including the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Geological Society of America. Fellows spend one year working as special assistants on the staffs of members of Congress or Congressional Committees, working in legislative areas requiring scientific and technical expertise. The program includes an orientation on Congressional and Executive branch operations and a year-long seminar program on issues involving science and public policy. For further information contact:
