Integrating Evidence and Data in the Policymaking Process through Science Policy Fellowships

With the support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Center for Results-Driven Governing is offering up to eight grants in two rounds of funding. The grants will support state efforts to plan for the creation of a state science policy fellowship program like those in Missouri, New Jersey and other states.

In each round of funding, NCSL will award as many as four grants of up to $100,000 each to applicants pursuing planning, development or implementation of a full-time, doctoral- or terminal-degree-level science policy fellowship program serving the state legislature.

Applicants will have seven weeks to complete their proposals. The advisory group will convene again in late August to review applications and select grantees.
