WASHINGTON — Kellyanne Conway received almost $13,000 for a recent consulting arrangement with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a group playing a central role in organizing the upcoming March for Science in Washington.

Financial disclosure forms released Friday evening by the White House showed that Conway, a senior counselor to President Trump, made thousands of dollars in the past year from a number of consulting arrangements, including jobs with advocacy organizations that oppose abortion and with the trade group that represents dietary supplements and over-the-counter medications.


On Sunday the AAAS told STAT that Conway’s business the Polling Company/WomanTrend  — which Conway ran before joining the White House staff — was contracted in 2015 to “facilitate questionnaires about perceptions of science among religious communities.” This was related to the science group’s Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion, which AAAS said seeks to build understanding of how religious communities perceive science. Conway’s company billed the AAAS $12,967.30.
