ELISS is a one-year, competitive program for graduate and professional students in all fields, including basic and applied sciences, engineering, humanities, business, law, and medicine.
Participants will engage experts and citizens in communities across the nation to better understand and address tough issues, ranging from health to environment to the economy. The hands-on experience provides a valuable service for society while preparing tomorrow's leaders to collaborate across boundaries to solve real-world problems. The program is designed as an extracurricular activity to complement full-time research or study.
ELISS was founded by a dedicated group of young leaders and is hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that reaches approximately 10 million individuals through some 261 affiliated societies and its peer-reviewed general science journal, Science.
