Jane Dell'Amore


Jane Dell’Amore has been on the staff of the National Research Council of the National Academies since 1974.  Her first five years were spent in the Office of International Affairs working on the exchange program with the former USSR and its aligned countries.  After transferring to the Associateship Programs office in 1979, she assumed the position of Supervisor of Operations, which included overseeing the processing of all applications for Postdoctoral Research Awards.  In addition, she has been responsible for promoting the Programs in the scientific community, including coordinating attendance at professional scientific meetings and conferences.


With the recent merger of the Research Associateship Programs Office with the Fellowships Office, Ms. Dell’Amore assumed the responsibility for coordinating all publicity and outreach activities for the Ford Fellowship Programs in addition to the Postdoctoral Research Associateship Programs.  With the merger, the Associateship Programs has changed the list of its outreach activities, adding meetings which target minority audiences and shifting emphasis from printed advertisements to Web based advertising.  Jane enjoys the challenge of working with the staff in recruiting more minority applicants to the Programs.


In her spare time, Jane enjoys doing volunteer work with the elderly, travel, studying Italian and creating beaded jewelry.
