AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships provide opportunities to outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about policymaking and contribute their knowledge and analytical skills in the policy realm. Fellows represent a broad range of backgrounds, disciplines, and career stages. Each year, the program adds to a growing corps over 3,000 strong of policy-savvy leaders working across academia, government, nonprofits, and industry to serve the nation and citizens around the world.
Seven fellows on Capitol Hill ushered in the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships program back in 1973. Today, AAAS places approximately 300 fellows each year in all branches of federal government. 
Fellows are a powerful and coveted resource – for each other and for the offices in which they serve. The STPF program has earned an impressive reputation, attracting significant interest from highly qualified scientists and engineers. The result is an ever-growing network of alumni who are adept at conducting and communicating their science to support policy in national and international arenas.
