Leonardo Educators and Students Program
As part of its ongoing effort to promote the advancement of scholarship in the field of art/science/technology, Leonardo has developed a series of initiatives under the Leonardo Educators and Students Program. These include:
- Leonardo Education and Art Forum (LEAF)
- Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS)
- Leonardo Art Science Student Contest
- Special Student Discounts on new membership/subscriptions to Leonardo
Leonardo Education and Art Forum
The Leonardo Education and Art Forum (LEAF) is a Leonardo Working Group that promotes the advancement of artistic research and academic scholarship at the intersections of art, science, and technology. Serving practitioners, scholars, and students who are members of the Leonardo community, LEAF provides a forum for collaboration and exchange with other scholarly communities, including the College Art Association (CAA).

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS)
The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), under the direction of Leonardo International Co-Editor Sheila Pinkel, is an evolving, comprehensive database of thesis abstracts (Ph.D., Masters and MFA) on topics at the intersections between art, science and technology. The aim of LABS is not to duplicate existing thesis databases but rather to give visibility to interdisciplinary work, which is often hard to retrieve from existing databases. This English-language database is hosted by Pomona College (Claremont, CA). In addition to being published in the database, a selection of abstracts chosen by a peer review panel for their special relevance will be published annually in Leonardo journal and on the Leonardo On-Line website.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts for review by the LABS peer review panel is June 30 each year. Abstract rankings are announced in the autumn. Authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an article for publication consideration in Leonardo.

The Leonardo Fellowship program was launched to recognize accomplished graduate students and junior faculty from Leonardo Senior Affiliate organizations. Selected Leonardo Fellows are given the opportunity to advance their selected research or project area through such activities as publishing in the internationally renowned Leonardo journal or creating a unique art-science project under the auspices of Leonardo, as well as to receive mentorship from senior Leonardo editors.
