ACS offers two public policy fellowships:

  • The ACS Congressional Fellowship is a one-year opportunity; two ACS members per year are placed on Capitol Hill as part of the larger, AAAS-administered program. 
  • The ACS Science Policy Fellowship is a one-year opportunity that is renewable for a second year. One Science Policy Fellow position is available at a time.
