We encourage you to share this information with qualified individuals.

The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship
Program is designed to engage early career individuals in the analytical
processes that inform U.S. science and technology policy.  Fellows obtain
the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in science and technology
policy at the federal, state, or local levels.  Fellows 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.  Each fellow is
assigned to a senior staff member who acts as his or her mentor. The mentor
provides guidance and ensures that the fellow’s time is focused on
substantive projects and activities within the fellow’s assigned unit.  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.
