AAAS strives to present to the federal government a diverse pool of qualified fellowship applicants, which includes broad representation of disciplinary areas, career stage, gender, race, age, ethnicity, physical ability, geographic location, and organizational affiliation. To help assess our progress toward these goals, please answer the demographic questions below.
Because the AAAS S&T Policy Fellowships are funded by the government, we are required to take affirmative action to employ and advance qualified individuals with disabilities, disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, active-duty wartime or campaign badge veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans. To help us meet these goals, please voluntarily self-identify if you have a disability and/or protected veteran status.
This data is kept confidential. Protected employment categories are not used by reviewers and selection committees. The information is used to guide and improve STPF outreach efforts as well as the application process. Thank you for helping ensure that STPF opportunities are communicated broadly and effectively to diverse science and engineering communities.
