California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) Fellows Placed in Senate and Assembly Offices
Jan. 4, 2010
Through funding to the California Council on Science and Technology, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation partnered with five other organizations to support the creation and development of a science and technology policy fellowship program for the California Legislature. The program was modeled after the successful 35-year-old federal Science & Technology Policy Fellowship Program administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Ten Ph.D.-level scientists and engineers are now in place in California Senate and Assembly offices providing unbiased, non-partisan science and technology expertise for policymakers, to be used to inform their decision-making.
