Three opportunities for taking action to shape U.S. science policy by working with the Federation of American Scientists

1. Evidence for Action Challenge with the Pew Charitable Trusts

The recently announced White House Year of Evidence for Action provides a platform for agencies to share leading practices, strengthen and develop new strategies, and increase collaboration within and outside government to encourage evidence-based decision-making across the federal government. To support this work, the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) has launched the Evidence for Action Challenge in collaboration with the Pew Charitable Trusts to demonstrate how the strategic use of evidence can lead to better policy outcomes for the American people.

Contribute your evidence-based idea to improve policy outcomes across the Administration’s most pressing priorities, including health, education and workforce, and climate and clean energy by submitting this form. If selected, FAS and Pew will work with you to refine your idea, identify relevant government audiences, and engage decision-makers who are best-positioned to implement your idea.

2. Future of STEM Learning Policy Accelerator

With our partners at 100Kin10, FAS is launching a new policy accelerator to develop groundbreaking STEM education policy proposals. This accelerator, which will run from June-August 2022, will center on crafting policies to build a better and more equitable STEM education system for our nation, with a specific focus on STEM teacher training, retention, and fostering a sense of belonging for teachers and students in STEM fields.

You can learn more about the Future of STEM Learning Policy Accelerator here, which also has answers to frequently-asked questions and information on the application process. Applications are due June 5, 2022.

3. Raise Your Hand to Serve with the FAS Day One Talent Hub

The Talent Hub is seeking scientific and technological experts interested in bringing their knowledge and skills into the federal government on a tour of public service. The Talent Hub works with federal government agency partners to understand their talent needs and then we use our talent network to place experts within federal agency roles as FAS Impact Fellows.

A tour of service is an opportunity to use your expertise and skills to drive the largest scale of impact. Through your time in government, you’ll not only be generating impact within government, but you’ll also gain experiences, capabilities, and networks that can change and strengthen your own professional journey.
