2016 Embassy Science Fellows proposals - Open for Applications

The 2016 Embassy Science Fellow Program (ESFP) has officially begun.  The ESFP places United States Government agency scientists at U.S. embassies and consulates for a period of one to three months. The Program facilitates and encourages bilateral cooperation and research on science and technology-related issues.

The ESFP provides a valuable mechanism for the USG to advance national research and development priorities through international collaboration and provides a venue to develop relationships which will benefit USG technical agencies. In some cases, agencies send Fellows to countries not already covered by traditional S&T agreements. As a result, the Fellows often provide important first contacts to new institutional linkages with counterpart entities, assisting USG agencies in fulfilling their research and development responsibilities.

The ESFP allows posts overseas access to high-level scientific advisory support to address S&T issues important to their missions, while simultaneously providing agency staff an opportunity for valuable international experience, training and networking.
