Science for Policy and Policy for Science: A Discussion of the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowship
Have you ever wondered how you might use your scientific skills to help the government formulate policy or how federal policy impacts science?
Have you ever wondered how you might use your scientific skills to help the government formulate policy or how federal policy impacts science? The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships are a public service and professional development opportunity for accomplished scientists, physicians, veterinarians and engineers to contribute to the federal policymaking process while learning firsthand about the intersection of science and policy. Currently there are 286 fellows in congressional offices, federal courts and federal agencies. If you are interested in the intersection between science and policy join us for an informal (and hopefully lively) discussion about science policy and how one can get involved in science policy with the AAAS fellowship. The fellowship takes PhDs at all levels so graduate students, postdocs, and faculty are all welcome (as are undergraduates who are curious about other paths one could take after going to graduate school).
