AIP Congressional Science Fellowships
The American Institute of Physics sponsors two scientists annually to spend a year providing analytical expertise and scientific advice to Congress. This enables scientists to broaden their experience through direct involvement with the legislative and policy processes.
Fellows gain a perspective which, ideally, will enhance not only their own careers but also the physics community’s ability to more effectively communicate with its representatives in Congress.
