ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 fellowship session.
The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program, now in its 17th year, provides early career individuals with the opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the National Academies in Washington, DC learning about science and technology policy and the role that scientists and engineers play in advising the nation.
Each year, applicants from around the world become part of a National Academies' committee, board, or unit where they are assigned to a mentor and learn about the world of science and technology policy. An immersive experience, the program is designed to broaden fellows’ appreciation of employment opportunities outside academia and leave them with both a firm grasp of the important and dynamic role of science and technology in decision-making and a better understanding of the role that they can play in strengthening the science and technology enterprise for the betterment of mankind.
Alumni of the program hold positions in Congressional committees and at federal agencies. Learn more...
