Our CCST Science Fellows program is a win-win for
Each year, CCST recruits a corps of PhD scientists and
engineers to spend one year in Sacramento serving the
California State Legislature. Working as legislative staff
in the State Senate or State Assembly, these scientific
minds get a front-row seat learning about the craft and
process of lawmaking in the State of California.
Talented scientists and engineers gain valuable career
training in public policy, and lawmakers gain access to
science-savvy staff to help them craft fact-based policies
for California's future.
The CCST Science Fellows program ensures that there
are science-savvy staff close to the first steps of policy
formation. Their experience evaluating complex scientific
issues and interpreting data provides a timely and
valuable resource to policymakers.
