Live Chat: Application and Interview Process


The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) is the premier opportunity for outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about public policy while contributing valuable knowledge and analytical skills to address today’s most pressing societal challenges. STPF fosters a network of STEM leaders who understand government and policymaking. Fellows gain invaluable knowledge of and experience with processes and priorities that drive public policy as well as a holistic understanding of our nation’s scientific enterprise.

Join us on September 19 at 1:00 pm ET for Application & Interview Process, the second-to-last of the 2019 live chat series with current and alumni fellows. Learn how fellows have been impacting science policy for 45 years. Ask questions to find out how to make your application stand out from the crowd.
