Description:
Offered by the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships place professional scientists and engineers in the California State Legislature for one-year appointments. These professional development opportunities enable fellows to work hands on with policy-makers to develop solutions to complex scientific and technical issues facing California through their interaction with the legislative process. The fellowships are ideal for qualified applicants who are interested in improving the interface between science and legislative decision-making and who want to learn the public policy decision-making process. Fellows are placed, for one year, in various offices of the California State Legislature.

With increasingly complex science and technological issues facing society today, the effective interface of science and public policy is becoming ever more important. Building on the successful and highly acclaimed national model of the Science and Technology Policy Fellowships offered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in the federal public policy arena, the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships create a similar interface in the California Legislature. The fellows learn the intricacies of the California legislative process and provide legislators and their staffs with clear and unbiased advice, answers to technical questions, and clarification of policy options for issues with science and technology related attributes.

Please explore our website to learn more about the California Science and Technology Fellowships and to complete the application and instructions. If, after looking, you are unable to find an answer to your questions please email us at info@fellows.ccst.us.
