The Distinguished Science of Learning Fellowship Program provides fellows the opportunity to gain experience beyond their current training in (a) conducting interdisciplinary research in the science of learning and (b) learning how to effectively communicate and translate scientific findings to practitioners, policymakers, and the general public. The fellowship program is open to pre-doctoral and post-doctoral applicants within and outside of Johns Hopkins University.
