The AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology manages the AAAS Alan I. Leshner Leadership Institute for Public Engagement with Science.

Each year, AAAS Leshner Fellows are selected from disciplines at the nexus of an important science-society issue. They convene for a week of intensive public engagement and science communication training and public engagement plan development. In addition to their individual plan, they are encouraged to consider collaborative projects with one or more other fellows to pursue over the course of the year.

AAAS Leshner Fellows 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. Visit About the Leshner Leadership Institute for more information about the program.

Applications for the 2020-2021 cohort are being accepted until October 8, 2019. Visit the Applications Procedures page for eligibility, required materials and FAQs information. Add your name to our mailing list to receive updates and information.
