This post was adapted from a AAAS announcement and relevant program pages.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) provide opportunities to outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about policymaking and contribute their knowledge and analytical skills in the policy realm. Fellows serve year-long assignments in the federal government and represent a broad range of backgrounds, disciplines, and career stages. Each year, STPF adds to a growing corps over 3,000 strong of policy-savvy leaders working across academia, government, nonprofits, and industry to serve the nation and citizens around the world.
The application season for the 2018-19 fellowship year is open from 1 May to 1 November. Learn more about becoming a Science & Technology Policy Fellow on the STPF program site or by viewing the STPF video series, then submit your application by 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday, 1 November.
Each month during the application period, AAAS has hosted live chats with current and alumni fellows in various disciplines and career stages to share their insights and answer questions about the program. An archive of past chats is available on the AAAS website, and the final live chat of the year will take place Thursday, 12 October, at 2:00 pm ET. The entire hour will be a text-based chat devoted to participant questions. RSVP to join the chat and submit your questions.
