Science Policy Fellows
The ESA Science Policy Fellows program is a great way to build your communication skills while you support and promote your profession.
The Science Policy Fellows (SPF) program is a two-year active training program to teach entomologists the skills needed to successfully advocate for the discipline. The training focuses on federal policy in Washington, D.C. Each year five applications are selected by during a competitive application process. ESA SPFs engage in a variety of virtual and in-person educational events to teach them about how science policy and science funding decisions are made at the federal level, and to provide them an opportunity to engage with lawmakers, legislative staff, and federal agency leaders in Washington, D.C. Active training lasts for two years, at which time SPFs become alumni and form the core of ESA's advocacy team, representing the science in their legislative districts.
All submissions are due by 11:59 PM Eastern on April 17, 2023. You are able to save applications and come back to them prior to the deadline; however once you have submitted your application you will not be able to edit. If you need to make changes after you have submitted contact email@example.com.
