Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program

The 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 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.

The online application is available at:
  • Applications are due September 5, 2013.
  • The stipend for the fellowship period is $8500.
  • The January 2014 session will commence on January 21, 2014 and end on April 11, 2014.
