Think government could use more science?
WHERE THE ACTION IS
DC is where science and policy converge. With assignments in federal agencies, on Capitol Hill, and in the judicial branch, you are at the frontline of important societal issues.
MEET THE EXPERTS
Where else can you get better instruction on how government works than from A-list experts? Fellowships include the rigorous STPF Professional Development program that kicks off with an in-depth, two-week orientation to public policy and the intricate workings of the federal government. The PD program is designed to help fellows develop skills in policy, leadership, communications, and networking and career strategies, through a number of avenues including monthly workshops, seminars, special interest affinity group programming, and a year-end summit.
A MONUMENTAL LIFESTYLE
World-class museums (most with free admission) and performing arts. A super family-, commuter-, and bike-friendly culture. A strong reputation for sustainability. Each year, DC is ranked among the top destinations in the world. Some fellows also have the opportunity to travel nationally or abroad for their host office.
