To catalyze widespread engagement with science and its societal implications, a partnership of civic institutions, media organizations, scientific associations, researchers, and foundations is coming together to create a new program, the Civic Science Fellowship.
The Fellowship embeds emerging leaders from diverse backgrounds in organizations working at the many interfaces of science and society. Fellows work on a variety of multidisciplinary projects that connect civic science research with evidence-based practice, and scientists with communities. Projects might include, for example, creating innovative media, designing approaches for community engagement, and investigating best practices for working with specific populations. Fellows also create connections and shared resources to strengthen the development of a culture of civic science across many types of networks. Read more.
