New Congressional Science Fellow on Capitol Hill


  • Anonymous


Kirsten Banks Cutler, AGU's newest Congressional Science Fellow, joined nearly 40 other scientists and engineers who began year-long science and engineering fellowships on September 6 in Washington, D.C. The fellowship program, which is organized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), brings together scientists and engineers from a wide variety of fields to spend a year in the personal office of a Senator or Representative, or on the staff of a congressional committee.

Earth and space scientists, chemists, physicists, biologists, psychologists, veterinarians, civil engineers, agronomists, and scientists and engineers representing other disciplines are selected by their sponsoring societies as part of a long-time effort to bridge the gap between scientists and policy-makers. Cutler is AGU's 24th Congressional Science Fellow.
