The Hellman Fellowship in Science and Technology Policy is one of the fellowships sponsored from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. This fellowship provides an opportunity for an early-career professional with training in science or engineering to learn about a career in public policy and administration. To be eligible for the Hellman Fellowship applicants must have a Ph.D. in an area of science or engineering and some experience or a demonstrated interest in an area related to science and technology policy. The Ph.D. must be conferred prior to the start of the fellowship. 

Hellman Fellows contribute to new and ongoing projects under the Academy’s Initiative for Science, Engineering, and Technology. The studies explore how science and technology are evolving, how to help the public understand those changes, and how society can better adapt to those changes. The Initiative convenes leading scientists and public policy experts from both academia and industry to advance critical thinking about the evolving landscape for scientific research.
