CCST is recruiting and accepting applications for the 2023 Class of CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellows.

Deadline Extended: Completed applications are due by 11:59 pm PST on March 7th, 2022. Fellows training begins Nov. 1, 2022 in Sacramento.

The CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellows program is open to those holding a PhD or equivalent degree in science, engineering, or social science fields such as economics, sociology, or psychology.

As CCST S&T Policy Fellows, scientists and engineers spend one year in Sacramento serving in the California State Legislature or within a California Executive Branch office. 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.
