Updated: September 14 2017

Applications are now being accepted for the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF). This professional level fellowship is the premier opportunity for outstanding anthropologists to learn first-hand about policymaking, bring valuable expertise to policy, and enhance anthropological science in the federal government.

Gain hands-on policy experience, help develop and execute solutions to address societal challenges, and join a strong corps of over 3,100 policy-savvy alumni fellows working across sectors to serve the nation and citizens around the world. Fellow contributions can include policy research, content analysis, and budgeting and research for interdisciplinary programs.

Fellows serve yearlong assignments in all three branches of the federal government in Washington D.C. and represent a broad range of backgrounds, disciplines and career stages. STPF is seeking candidates with strong social and/or behavioral science credentials, an interest in career transformation and a desire to enhance federal policy.

Application deadline for the 2018-19 fellowship year is November 1, 2017. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship and a doctoral level degree.
