*Apply Now for State Department/EPA Embassy Air Quality Fellowship*
Applications are now being accepted for a joint U.S. Department of State
(DOS) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) air quality
monitoring fellowship. This fellowship is a vital component of State
and EPA’s collaborative efforts to help improve the availability of
continuous air quality data worldwide. In 2016, the DOS/EPA program
will provide data from 24 U.S. embassies and consulates overseas to
EPA’s AirNow <http://airnow.gov>platform.
The fellows will volunteer for one year of collaborative technical
and/or policy support for an “adopted” US embassy that is implementing
an air quality monitoring program. The fellow is expected to provide
10-20 hours of virtual support monthly to their host embassy. There may
be opportunities for paid overseas travel to visit the embassy,
collaborate with the host foreign government, and provide training to US
staff and other entities. Fellows will not require or obtain a security
clearance for this program. Fellows will remain at their home offices
and agencies, except for potential travel to the embassy. /Please note
