Scientists can play a critical role in informing public policy, yet most scientists lack the experience of working directly with government leaders in the lawmaking process. Now, teams in nine U.S. states — including North Carolina — will receive a planning grant to evaluate the potential to create a policy fellowship for scientists and engineers in their state capital. The new grant is administered by the California Council on Science and Technology, or CCST, to encourage other states to replicate or adapt its successful CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellowship.
Updated Feb. 9 with award information.
