2021 Chat Series: Live Chats with AAAS S&T Policy Fellows

STPF Class of 2022-23 in front of the US Capitol


The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) have been the premier opportunity for outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about policymaking while contributing their expertise to the federal government for nearly a half century. 

What does 50 years of science policy impact look like? Join us for the 2021 Live Chat series to find out. Each month from May through October we’ll have a robust conversation with fellows, alumni fellows and STPF staff. We’ll hear fellows’ personal experiences and connect their stories to broader findings from a comprehensive evaluation conducted on the STPF program. Plus, we’ll answer your questions about life before, during and after the fellowship.
