If you are passionate about social policy, want to learn more about the field, or are looking to explore career options after graduation this seminar workshop is for you!
Three alumni and a recruiter from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will be coming to Penn to talk to us about the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow (STPF). This is a yearlong fellowship that provides the opportunity for scientists to learn first-hand about policymaking and contribute their knowledge and analytical skills in the policy realm. Fellows serve yearlong assignments in the federal government (any of the three branches). This workshop will touch on: application process, transition into the fellowship, how to become a competitive applicant, and testimonials from alumni regarding what their day-to-day looked like during the fellowship as well as how the fellowship influenced their career paths.
