Frances Colón (2006-08 fellow at the State Department) was named a Member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. "My fellowship gave me real-world training in policymaking. It positively disrupted my scientist understanding of influence, framing issues for audiences, and the power of networks. These experiences and networks opened doors for the work I do today at Center for American Progress and serving on PCAST."
Congrats to Jenelle Krishnamoorthy who is now Vice President of Global Public Policy, Corporate Affairs at Merck. “My STPF fellowships in Congress and the State Department gave me the domestic and international policy depth, political insight and application of science in diverse settings, to distinguish myself as the perfect leader to head Merck’s policy and international teams worldwide,” she said.
