Subject: IDA - STPI Science Policy Fellowship Program
The STPI Science Policy Fellowship Program provides recent bachelor’s or
master’s degree recipients a unique opportunity to use their critical
thinking and analytic skills to work on a diverse set of challenges in
science and technology (S&T) policy areas, including energy and the
environment, space sciences, innovation and competitiveness, evaluation, life
sciences, information technologies, national security, and STEM education.
Fellows will work with a team of researchers to support a wide variety of S&T
policy-related tasks. Duties may include conducting survey-based and
interview-based research, database development, use of data visualization
tools, use of statistical techniques, and other qualitative and quantitative
methods to perform project-driven policy analysis. Fellows will have an
opportunity to work on one independent research project that will contribute
to the scientific, technical, or policy literature.
This program is only open to recent recipients of a bachelor’s or
master’s degree. Candidates must have at least a bachelor’s degree
conferred between May 2013 and July 2015. MA/MS-degree candidates and

sciences, computer science, mathematical sciences or statistics, and learning
