Scientific community managers: applications for the AAAS Community Engagement Fellows Program are now open

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has launched the application process for the new Community Engagement Fellows Program, which will provide professional development for engagement experts in the scientific community. Applications will be accepted through Sunday, October 16.

You may remember the survey AAAS ran in connection with the fellowship program to begin to understand what community management in science looks like. They’ve published a series of blog posts about the survey results and will be releasing a complete report soon.

Learn more about the purpose and timeline of the fellowship program here.

AAAS is seeking two types of applicants for the fellowship: current scientific community managers, and individuals looking to enter the field and be placed in an organization. Their Become a Fellow page describes what’s expected of Fellows during the program, and lists the eligibility and selection criteria for each of these options.

They’re also keen to hear from scientific organizations interested in hosting a Fellow. You can read more about what’s expected of organizations during the program plus eligibility and application requirements for host organizations on the Host a Fellow page.

APPLY HERE!


DISCLOSURE: I was part of a group of experts in community, culture change, and scientific collaboration invited to help AAAS with curriculum development for this program. As such, I know it’s going to be awesome! I encourage you to apply if you are or want to be a community manager for a scientific society!
