The Revelle fellowship is a unique opportunity to address global stewardship issues by applying a science or engineering background toward solutions to societal problems including ecosystems, population and climate change.
The Roger Revelle Fellowship in Global Stewardship was established in recognition of Roger Revelle, a renowned statesman of science. Revelle fellows of many different scientific backgrounds help host offices better employ scientific and technical knowledge in environmental policymaking. This fellowship is designed to provide an opportunity for an accomplished scientist to address global stewardship problems by applying his or her multidisciplinary background toward solutions to societal issues ranging from ecosystems and population to sustainable development and climate change.
Placements may be in any branch of federal government, a nonprofit organization, an NGO, or a similarly identified organization. Previous host offices have included the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. Department of State, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. This fellowship is tailored to match the fellow’s background with the needs of the host office. Fellowship experiences vary between offices and agencies. Read the stories of past Revelle fellows below.
Please note: The endowed Revelle Fellowship is available at least every four years. Applications will be accepted in the following application cycles: 2020, 2024, etc. This fellowship is open to applicants who are seven or more years past the date they received their qualifying degree (a doctorate or an M.S. in engineering).
