Chat Series


The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) is the premier opportunity for outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about public policy while using their knowledge and analytical skills to address today’s most pressing societal challenges. With yearlong placements in Washington in the executive, judicial and legislative branches of federal government, STPF fosters a network of STEM leaders who understand government and policymaking.

Join us on October 12 at 2:00pm ET for a STPF Q&A hour. This will be a text based chat and the entire hour will be devoted to your questions. Last minute questions as you get ready to submit your application for the 2018-19 fellowship year? Questions about the fellowship areas? Wondering if this fellowship is the right fit for you?
