Nominations are open until November 1 for the AAAS Leshner Leadership Institute for Public Engagement with Science, focused on climate change in its first year. This program convenes mid-career scientists who demonstrate leadership in their research careers and in promoting meaningful dialogue between science and society.

Each year, a cohort of 15 Public Engagement Fellows from disciplines at the nexus of important science-society issues will convene for a week of intensive public engagement and science communication training, networking, and public engagement plan development. AAAS staff will provide a year of intensive support and continuing professional development during implementation of the plan. The first cohort will be comprised of scientists whose research focuses on climate change.

Public Engagement Fellows will return to their institutions with resources to develop and implement public engagement activities, a forum for training other scientists in their communities, increased capacity for public engagement leadership, and the support of the Fellows.

For eligibility and nomination requirements, please visit: www.aaas.org/LLI.
