Text Chat: General Questions about STPF
The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) is the premier opportunity for outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about public policy while using their knowledge and analytical skills to address today’s most pressing societal challenges. With yearlong placements in Washington in the executive, judicial and legislative branches of federal government, STPF fosters a network of STEM leaders who understand government and policymaking.
Join us for the last of six live chats on October 12, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Hear directly from STPF fellows and staff and learn about the impact fellows have been making for over 44 years. Ask questions and learn how STPF fellows impact science policy initiatives in all three branches of the federal government -- and how you can apply your science and engineering background to transform your career.
Apply today! The deadline is November 1.
