 Congressional Science & Technology Policy Fellowship

The Biophysical Society (BPS) is a professional association whose mission is to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. The BPS Congressional Science & Technology Policy Fellowship Program provides an invaluable and unique opportunity for BPS members to gain practical experience and insights into public policy by working on Capitol Hill. The fellowship program places one fellow annually to serve as staff members in a Senate, House of Representatives, or Committee office. The Fellowship is an ideal way to spend an academic sabbatical or leave of absence from a company.

Applications will be accepted beginning July 1, 2014, for the first 12-month fellowship term, which will run from September 2015 through August 2016. Fellows are also expected to attend a two-week orientation, conducted by the AAAS, in September 2015.

For more information on the Fellowship and application requirements, please visit the Congressional Policy Fellowship webpage
