Scientific Societies

FYI is supported by the American Institute of Physics, a federation of 10 scientific societies. FYI covers issues of special concern to these societies and their positions on select issues as well as the activities of other major scientific societies.

24 Oct 1994

The American Institute of Physics and The American Physical Society
are seeking physicists who have an interest in science policy
issues.  Applications are now being accepted for the 1995-1996 AIP
and APS Congressional Science Fellowships.

5 Jan 1994

A reminder to FYI readers - if you are interested in the 1994-1995
AIP and APS Congressional Science Fellowships, or know someone who
might be - the deadline is approaching!  All application material
(letter of intent, resume of 2 pages or less, and three letters of
recommendation) must be postmarked to the address provided below no
later than JANUARY 15, 1994.

Fellowship

A reminder to FYI readers - if you want to apply for the 1996-1997
AIP and APS Congressional Science Fellowships, or know someone who
might - the deadline is approaching!  Interested applicants are
asked to send a letter of intent and a resume (of two pages or
less) to the address specified below, and should arrange to have
three letters of reference sent to the same address.  All
application materials, single-sided on 8.5" x 11" paper, must be
postmarked NO LATER THAN JANUARY 15, 1996.

On September 6, a group of scientists will begin one-year terms
working on Capitol Hill.  The American Institute of Physics, the
American Physical Society, the American Geophysical Union, and,
jointly, the Optical Society of America and the Materials Research
Society, all sponsor Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows.
Approximately 25 professional societies participate in the program
each year under the auspices of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science. 

11 Nov 1996

The campaigning is over, the final absentee votes are being counted, and
Congress will be back in town later this month to organize committee
assignments for the 105th Congress.  While most of the Members' recent focus
has been on their states and districts, Capitol Hill has not been completely
deserted. The  incoming class of Congressional Science and Engineering
Fellows participated in a two-week orientation to acclimate them to their new
working environment.  Many have already selected offices and begun serving

19 Dec 1997

A reminder to FYI readers - if you want to apply for the 1998-1999 AIP and APS Congressional Science Fellowships, or know someone who might - the deadline is approaching! Interested applicants are asked to send a letter of intent and a resume (of two pages or less) to the address specified below, and should arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same address. All application materials, single-sided and unstapled on 8.5" x 11" paper, must be postmarked NO LATER THAN JANUARY 15, 1998.

13 Nov 1998

Would you like to stroll the marble halls of Congress? Do you wish you could contribute a voice of science and reason to policy debates? Have you ever wondered whether law-making is really as messy as sausage-making, as the old adage says? The American Institute of Physics and The American Physical Society are looking for physicists who have an interest in science policy and the process of making legislation. Applications are now being accepted for the 1999-2000 AIP and APS Congressional Science Fellowships.

16 Dec 1999

Scientists with an interest in policy, take note! There is now less than one month before the application deadline for the AIP and APS 2000-2001 Congressional Science Fellowships. For those PhD scientists who want to apply their knowledge and skills beyond the lab bench, who believe there is a need for technical advice and analysis in the conduct of national policy, this is an opportunity to make a difference.

29 Oct 1999

"The road to the hearts and minds of Members of Congress is through their staffs," says Peter Rooney, a PhD physicist who spent a year working for Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) as an APS Congressional Science Fellow. As the country approaches a new millennium, the need for scientists who can contribute technical knowledge to the lawmaking process has never been higher.
