Roger Revelle Fellowship in Global Stewardship

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 another approved 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. One placement is available periodically and 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.
