CCST is recruiting and accepting applications for the 2022 Class of CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellows.

Completed applications are due by 11:59 pm PST on March 1st, 2021.

As CCST Science Fellows, scientists and engineers spend one year in Sacramento serving in the California State Legislature or within a California state agency. Working as staff in the State Assembly, State Senate, or in a state agency they get a front-row seat learning about the craft and process of decision making in the State of California — a dynamic arena that often sets policy trends for the United States and the world.
