ALFRED P. SLOAN FOUNDATION

AFI/Sloan Science Advisors

Got science (in your script)?

We are here to help!

AFI has a long tradition of nurturing films featuring science. All AFI Fellows are encouraged to work with a science advisor for their projects. Students applying for the Sloan Foundation Grants are required to work with a science advisor.

Our advisors are astronauts, doctors, federal regulators, psychologists, chemists and physicists. Below is a sampling of the science advisors available. If you do not find an expert that suits your needs, contact the lead advisor, who will coordinate you with an advisor from our broad array of experts.
