Congressional Fellowship Program Information Session

Wednesday, 20 September 12:00 - 13:00
Exhibit Hall Theater, Columbia

Learn more about the Congressional Science Policy Fellowships from a past Congressional Fellow.  The Congressional Science Policy Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for PhD scientists and engineers to spend one year working for a U.S. member of Congress or Congressional committee to learn about the policy making process while also bringing their scientific backgrounds and skills to the policy making process.  OSA cosponsors two Congressional Fellows per year.  This information session will feature a past Congressional Fellow who will discuss the fellowship experience, how it has had an impact on their career, why scientists and engineers should consider applying for the fellowship, and answer questions from interested attendees. 

RSVP by contacting Brandy Dillingham at bdillingham@osa.org.
