FELLOWSHIP REQUIREMENTS AND EXPECTATIONS
The Alliance for Science Global Leadership Fellows Program is an extremely
intensive 12-week experiential training course. We seek participants with
extraordinary leadership drive, a high level of engagement in professional
networks, and a passion for enhancing food security, environmental
sustainability, and access to scientific innovations such as agricultural
biotechnology to help meet the formidable global challenges of today.
Applicants to the 12-week Fellows Program should be prepared for long days
of instruction, complex subject matter, homework assignments, some weekend
and evening activities, and active participation in both their country
groups and the larger 2019 cohort of Fellows.
The 2019 Global Leadership Fellows Program will be held August 26-November
15 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, which is about a four-hour
drive from New York City.
- The Fellowship training is conducted in English. Applicants must be
proficient in English to participate.
- Full course participation is required. If you are unable to commit to
the full 12-week program, we may not be able to consider your participation.
- Pre-course readings and homework will be assigned to incoming
participants to complete prior to the start of the program.
- Participants will need use of a personal laptop for the training. If
you are admitted to the program and laptop access will be a problem, please
just let us know.
- Living space will be shared. Training participants will live with
other participants of the same gender in apartments around Ithaca, New
York. Each participant will have a private bedroom. Bathrooms and common
space will be shared. Some apartments will be located walking distance to
Cornell University campus and some will require use of a local bus.
- Participants will need a valid passport that remains valid for the
next 12 months in order to secure a travel visa.

I don't mind not knowing. It doesn't scare me. - Richard Feynman
To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely
to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say
what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
