Fellowship Opportunities

American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Mass Media Science & Engineering fellows Program

Purpose
Increasing public understanding of science and technology is one of the principal goals of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAAS has improved coverage of science and technology in mass media for more than 30 years through the Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellows Program.

This highly competitive program strengthens the connections between scientists and journalists by placing advanced science, mathematics and engineering students in newsrooms across the country. The AAAS Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write, and report today's headlines, sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to non-specialists
.

National Park Service

Since its inception in 1916, the National Park Service has been dedicated to the preservation and management of this country's outstanding natural, historical, and recreational resources. Today, the National Park Service encompasses more than 370 sites across the United States and in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. There are parks of great natural beauty and grandeur, such as the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone; parks that preserve the nation's cultural and historical treasures, as a Mesa Verde and Gettysburg Battlefield; and parks of significant national beauty along seashores, lakeshores, and riverways, providing opportunities for outdoor activities, such as Assateague Island and Lake Mead. The National Park Service is a bureau of the United States Department of the Interior.

Every year, millions of people from the United States and abroad visit our national park areas. To protect park resources and to serve the public, the National Park Service employs a permanent workforce and an essential temporary workforce. Whether permanent or temporary, employees have the opportunity to learn more about the National Park Service system and its mission.

Temporary jobs are very competitive. The number of applicants is usually far greater than the positions available every year, particularly at larger, well-known parks. Some positions are filled by experienced temporary employees who have worked previously for the National Park Service.

Georgia Institute of Technology

Perhaps you'd like to help discover a new drug, or learn how to use microbes to clean up contaminated sediments? Maybe you want to help figure out why coral reefs are one of the most diverse places on Earth, or how aquatic animals communicate? What about working at the Mall? If the first four choices sound much more interesting than the last, then ACE at GaTech may be for you. Aquatic Chemical Ecology ( ACE ) at Georgia Tech is a new NSF-sponsored summer research program that gives you the opportunity to perform exciting research with our faculty in the Schools of Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Engineering and Earth & Atmospheric Sciences. You'll participate in research with one or more of our faculty, learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry and biology to investigate some of the most challenging problems in environmental sciences.  If you want to see what research is like, get skills and training that will benefit you for the rest of your life, and spend the summer in a great place, then read on.
