Trainers & Instructors


The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) seeks trainers to provide professional development (PD) programming to STPF fellows. We recruit trainers, coaches and facilitators on topics related to communication, leadership and policy, all with a focus on the OPM executive core qualifications and fundamental competencies. An integral part of the fellowship, the goal of the PD program is to foster fellows’ development as science policy leaders. (This solicitation is for individual workshops and seminars, not for the yearlong PD curriculum.)

Learning Tracks and Goals
  • Policy: Understand the role of science and its impact on public policy and recognize some of the major forces that influence policy -- lobbying, think tanks, advocacy/special interest groups, and media.
  • Communication: Identify the value of outreach and education to non-scientific audiences.
  • Leadership: Develop skills to serve effectively as AAAS Policy Fellows, future science policy leaders, and forge successful career paths.

Please see the STPF PD request for proposals (RFP) for more details on our programming solicitation. We seek engaging, cost-effective programming that supports our efforts to cultivate science policy leaders. Proposals for the 2017-18 fellowship class are accepted through Friday, June 30, 2017, 5:00 p.m. ET.
