2023 Live Chat Series featuring a photo of 2022-23 STPF Class.


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.  

Join us for the 2023 Live Chat series to find out what 50 years of science policy impact looks like. Each month from June through October we’ll have a robust conversation with fellows, alumni fellows and STPF staff. Plus, we’ll answer your questions about life before, during and after the fellowship.
