STPF Live Chat July 2022: Policy Interest to Policy Influencer

2022 July Live Chat Series with date


The AAAS S&T Policy Fellowships (STPF) is an immersive policy experience for scientists, social scientists and engineers who have a demonstrated interest in science policy. What does that really mean? Join us on July 14 at 2 p.m. ET to find out. Hear from current and alumni STPF fellows who will share their own journey from “Policy Interest to Policy Influencer.” They’ll offer advice on how to explore your policy interests before applying to STPF, as well as tips for articulating your policy interests in your STPF application. Plus, you’ll learn more about the policy knowledge and skills that fellows develop during their fellowship year.  

This is the second of a five-part series. Miss an earlier chat? View the full schedule and watch on-demand recordings of previous chats here
