Give Science a Voice

Accept the Jacobs' Challenge Match

As society confronts a daunting list of existential challenges, AAAS is working to ensure that scientific and evidence-based information is fully and positively integrated into public policy by filling a critical need for scientific and technical support for members of Congress.

By contributing to AAAS through the Jacobs' Challenge, there’s never been a better time to give to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) program.

Your support combined with a generous $2 million match from Qualcomm Co-founder Irwin Jacobs and his wife, Joan, will launch an endowment to provide sustained support to meet the Congressional demand for fellows, boost lawmakers’ access to scientific knowledge, and promote evidence-based decision-making in the halls of Congress.

AAAS is a 501(c)3 organization. As no goods or services are provided in return for any charitable contributions, the entire amount is tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.
