Bringing Scientists to the Federal Government: How Well Does It Work?

The Goodman Research Group (GRG) conducted a retrospective evaluation in 2019 to assess the impact of the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships program on fellows and host offices. GRG fielded 1261 alumni and 235 mentor (government staff who manage fellows) surveys and interviewed 24 alumni, 14 mentors, and seven AAAS staff. The results were overwhelmingly positive.

STPF Director Jennifer Pearl and Karen Gareis of GRG presented the results at a webinar on July 1, 2020.
