This competitive program is meant to bridge the science-policy gap through a series of presentations and workshops designed for graduate students in the sciences, engineering, and medicine who are interested in learning more about science policy, education, advocacy, and communication. The goals are to help graduate students cultivate a knowledge base and tangible skills they can use to translate their science into public policy or transition into policy careers.


  • Any graduate student in a STEM discipline
  • Must be available to attend 10 weekly sessions on Thursdays, either 4-7 PM or 5-8 PM, during the Winter 2021 quarter.
