Applications Welcome for OSTP Student Volunteer Program

Crystal Tinch American Astronomical Society (AAS)

The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is currently accepting applications for its Fall 2013 Student Volunteer Program. The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. EDT Friday, 28 June. Students who are U.S. citizens and who will be actively enrolled during the Fall 2013 semester are welcome to apply.
More information and application instructions are available on the OSTP page.
The Office of Science and Technology Policy advises the President on the effects of science and technology on domestic and international affairs. The office serves as a source of scientific and technological analysis and judgment for the President with respect to major policies, plans, and programs of the federal government.
Student volunteers are accepted for one of three terms (Spring, Summer, or Fall), which each last no more than 90 days. While these positions are without compensation, the assignments provide educational enrichment, practical work experience, and networking opportunities with other individuals in the science and technology policy arena.
