Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program

The Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program, now in its 18th year, provides early career individuals with the opportunity to spend 12 weeks at the 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 an 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.

The Forum on Science Ethics and Policy
University of Colorado Boulder

The Forum on Science Ethics and Policy (FOSEP) is a student organization open to graduate students and postdocs of all disciplines. Our primary mission is to promote dialog within the scientific community about the relationship between science and policy. We believe a better understanding of major science policy issues from climate change to science agency funding as well as engagement with policy makers helps better connect scientific solutions to real-world problems. Whether you are interested in a career in policy or just want to talk politics over a beer, we look forward to seeing you at our events this semester. For more information please visit our website.
