Leshner Leadership Institute: Application Deadline

2018-2019 Food and Water Security Cohort of AAAS Leshner Fellows | Mary Catherine Longshore, AAAS

Applications will be accepted from August 1 - October 1.

The Leshner Leadership Institute is an initiative of the AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology, started in 2015 in honor of CEO Emeritus Alan I. Leshner, who founded the Center. Each year, a cohort of 15 AAAS Leshner Fellows from an area of research at the nexus of science and society will convene for a week of intensive public engagement and science communication training and public engagement plan development. Fellows will return to their institutions with a renewed commitment to develop and implement public engagement activities, train and mentor other scientists in their communities, and promote public engagement within their institutions.

Human enhancement is the topic for the 2019-2020 cohort of AAAS Leshner Fellows.
