CCST S&T Policy Fellows: Science and Technology Informing Policy

Each year, CCST trains and mentors 10 scientists and engineers in the policymaking process, then places them alongside staffers in California Assembly and Senate offices. Known in the State Capitol as "the Science Fellows", these PhD-level experts experience a year of public service and leadership training, and get the chance to explore a career in California’s policy arena. At the same time, the State Legislature benefits from access to highly skilled, sciencesavvy staff to advise them on legislative issues and priorities.
