The Congressional Science Fellowship Fund supports the GSA-U.S. Geological Survey Congressional Science Fellow program. Congressional Science Fellows spend a year working as a staff member for a Member of Congress or congressional committee.
The purpose of the program is threefold:
- contribute to more effective use of scientific and technical knowledge in government;
- provide a unique public policy learning experience and educate the earth science community about the public policy process;
- broaden the perspective of the earth science and governmental communities regarding closer interactions between scientists and policymakers.
