Leonard Rieser Fellowship in Science, Technology, and Global Security
The Fellowship will annually provide one-time awards of $2,500 to between three and five undergraduate students seeking to explore the connections between science, technology, global security, and public policy (science students are especially encouraged to apply). It will be presented to students whose academic interests, extra-curricular activities, and career aspirations demonstrate an interest in the role of scientists in formulating public policy and in addressing global security policy challenges. The Fellowship may be used over the course of one year (12 months) to support academic research or professional development, in the United States or abroad. The Fellowship will be paid in two installments of $1,250-one made at the commencement of the Fellowship, and the second upon its conclusion and following the receipt of a project report and receipts. Specifically, the Fellowship could be used for a number of purposes, including the following: to provide a stipend for an otherwise unpaid full-time internship; to provide for housing or a per diem for research conducted out of town; to underwrite the cost of travel or transportation to support academic research; for participation in or travel to professional conferences where the Fellow presents academic research; to underwrite the production costs of a special project, ranging from the making of a documentary film to laboratory work. Selection for the Fellowship will be based upon the applicant's demonstrated interest in the fields of science, technology and public policy; international affairs; or global security policy. While students are encouraged to be creative and imaginative in their use of the Fellowship, they are also encouraged to be realistic in the viability of the proposed project. Deadline: early March.
