Indiana Science Policy Education & Career Training (INSPECT) Fellowship Program
The INSPECT Fellowship’s purpose is to bring together the scientific community and state government while training scientists to be effective advisors for public policy. These fellowships will allow current graduate students in STEM fields to work side-by-side with elected officials to incorporate more scientific information into state and local policy decisions to promote the long term health, sustainability, and economic growth of Hoosiers across Indiana.
Available to current science-based graduate students, the INSPECT Fellowship is a paid, 10-week summer fellowship sponsored by the Graduate School and the Indiana Academy of Science. Selected Fellows are placed as nonpartisan, scientific advisors in specified executive agencies (Host Office) within the state of Indiana, with the appointment starting May 30. While gaining real-world experience in science policy by researching and drafting science, technical, and/or policy issues of agency interest, Fellows build their network and expand future career opportunities in the field of science policy. The previous fellow was placed as an advisor in the IN Department of Education.
