Note!!! The application deadline is August 31, 1999.

The Aldo Leopold Leadership Program -- about to begin its
second year -- will train 60 environmental scientists to be
effective communicators and leaders. The Leopold Leadership
Fellows will be primarily tenured academic environmental
scientists who are active in research and teaching. Leopold
Leadership Fellows hone skills that enable them to better
share their knowledge of environmental science with media
representatives, policy makers, and the private sector.

The Program will train 20 scientists a year for three years.
The first cohort of fellows -- which includes at least three
active SSI members -- has completed the first training
session and will soon embark upon the second one in the DC

The training sessions include five modules:

* Providing Leadership within the Scientific Community
* Providing Scientific Input to the Policy Process
* Communicating with the Media
* Interacting with the Corporate Sector
* Working with Non-Governmental Organizations

The above topics will be spread out over the course of two
week-long training sessions -- the first training session is
scheduled for June 13-20, 2000, and the second for a week
next September. The application deadline for the second
year's program is August 31, 1999. Since the application
requires some references, you might want to take a look
right away if you are interested.
