The 2024–25 Civic Science Fellows cohort will launch in spring 2024. As 2024–25 host partners open applications for Fellows, we will share them here and in our monthly newsletter (see below to sign up). Envisioned as a Civic Science Lab, Fellows and partners carry out pioneering work to co-create pilots, partnerships, knowledge, models, and new ways of working that can help seed collaborations between science and society. All Fellows will engage as a cohort in a learning program and community, developed in collaboration with the network and an interdisciplinary committee of advisors.

Princeton University Graduate School is now accepting applications for a 2024–25 Civic Science Fellow to work with the GradFUTURES initiative to advance equitable pathways to opportunity for Ph.D. students.

The Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) is now accepting applications for a 2024–25 Civic Science Fellow to advance institutional capacity-building through the Seeding Action initiative, designed to catalyze and support science centers, museums, and public engagement networks to cultivate a culture of hope and action for planetary health. The Seeding Action Civic Science Fellow will lead the design, planning, and implementation of a project that builds capacity to implement public engagement efforts in ways that increase planetary health impact—including the interlinked challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, and air, soil, and water pollution, as well as implications of these issues for human lives and society. This is a full-time, 18-month position ideal for someone with experience leading collaborative planetary health action projects. Learn more and apply here.

The Morgridge Institute for Research is now accepting applications for two 2024–25 Civic Science Fellows positions to join the next cohort. These full-time, 18-month positions will focus on evidence-based approaches to communicating about science in polarized political or information environments. The Morgridge Institute Civic Science Fellows will join thought leaders, bridge builders, change agents, and communicators working to learn about community priorities and scientific research and bring those worlds together on equal footing to create fundamentally new ways of solving problems. Apply by November 15.
