Established in response to a unanimous vote of the California State Legislature in 1988, the California Council on Science and Technology is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that draws upon the greatest scientific minds in the state to provide expert and unbiased scientific advice to the state government and to recommend solutions to science and technology-related public policy issues.

CCST is committed to promoting the responsible application of science and technology to inform public policy decisions in the State of California.

Offered by the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships place professional scientists and engineers in the California State Legislature for one-year appointments. These professional development opportunities will enable fellows to work hands on with policy-makers to develop solutions to complex scientific and technical issues facing California through their interaction with the legislative process. The fellowships are ideal for qualified applicants who are interested in improving the interface between science and legislative decision-making and who want to learn the public policy decision-making process. Fellows will be placed, for one year, in various offices of the California State Legislature.

With increasingly complex science and technological issues facing society today, the effective interface of science and public policy is becoming ever more important. Building on the successful and highly acclaimed national model of the Science and Technology Policy Fellowships offered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in the federal public policy arena, the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships will create a similar interface in the California Legislature. The fellows will learn the intricacies of the California legislative process and will provide legislators and their staffs with clear and unbiased advice, answers to technical questions, and clarification of policy options for issues with science and technology related attributes.

CCST is pleased to acknowledge the valuable input of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to help launch the California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships and the CCST Executive Oversight Committee for their guidance.

The application period for the 2011-2012 program will open on December 1, 2010 and close on March 31, 2011.
