We’re excited to be able to announce the inaugural class of the AAAS Community Engagement Fellows! Funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the AAAS Community Engagement Fellows Program is in its pilot year. The program’s mission is to improve community-building and collaboration in scientific organizations and research collaborations by providing a year of training and support to a cohort of scientific community managers.

The Fellowship will begin this January when the first cohort of Fellows gathers for a week-long training course at AAAS headquarters. They will work together with guidance from leaders in the field to develop tools and strategies for effective engagement in their communities. Over the next year the fellows will attend monthly webinars, report out their challenges and successes, and attend mid-year and end-of-year meetings.
