Since 1973, nearly 2,000 American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellows have bridged the divide between science and public policy, gaining significant knowledge about the federal government while advancing their careers and helping promote science in the U.S. and around the globe.
Year-long opportunities are available in approximately 30 congressional offices and nearly 15 federal agencies in Washington, DC.
