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 sponsors one fellow annually to serve as a staff member 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.

Fellows are also expected to attend a two-week orientation, conducted by the AAAS, in September of each year.

The selected fellow will receive a salary, a travel stipend, and an allowance for health insurance.

The BPS Congressional Science & Technology Policy Fellowship Program is administered by AAAS as part of a broader effort to engage scientists in public policy. For more information, visit the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships website.
