Qualifications and Applications Procedures

Prospective applicants should have a broad geoscience background and excellent written and oral communications skills. Minimum requirements are a master's degree with at least three years of post-degree work experience or a Ph.D. at the time of appointment. Although prior experience in public policy is not necessary, a demonstrable interest in applying science to the solution of public problems is desirable. Due to the nature of the position, preference will be given to applicants who are US citizens or permanent residents. Applicants must be a member of one of AGI's 35 member societies (click here for listing).

The AGI Congressional Science Fellowship carries an annual stipend of up to $49,000 plus allowances for health insurance, relocation, and travel. Funding for the fellowship is provided through the AGI Foundation.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and a curriculum vitae with three letters of reference. All application materials must be postmarked by February 3, 2003 and sent to:
