For half a century, the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) program has helped ensure that public policy is informed by science. STPF fellows are STEM experts who are committed to serving society and who reflect society’s full diversity. Bestowed with the National Science Foundation’s NSB Public Service Award, the STPF program has spurred a cascade of positive impacts throughout society since 1973, and is excited to continue making waves into the future.
