UVA PhD+ Science Policy Bootcamp
Registration will close on Dec 20, 2019 or when capacity is reached.
What is the UVA PhD+ Science Policy Bootcamp? This intensive and interactive course will expose participants to the public policy process with a focus on issues of science and technology (S&T). If you think you might be interested in a career in science policy, this week will give you a good idea of the types of opportunities available and the variety of work you could do. The working agenda is at
Should I attend if I have gone to a past UVA bootcamp? Yes! This course is designed quite differently and will expose you to additional skills development.
Who will the instructors and guests be? We will feature guests with perspectives on science policy from the state, federal, and international levels. Two workshops will allow participants to apply the skills they are learning to policy scenarios. Please see the agenda on the UVA PhD Plus website for details.
Do I have to do anything outside of class? Participants will be expected to do some outside reading ahead of the course and during the week.

Year of Study (e.g. 3rd, 4th, etc.)
I would describe my experience with science policy as
None. I want to learn more.
Interested: I pay attention to science policy issues. I have attended SPI meetings.
Some training: I have had some science policy training (e.g. a course or a previous bootcamp).
Experienced: I have worked in a science policy role.
If you have a specific policy issue/s you are most interested in, let us know here. It could be at any level, local, state, federal or international. Examples include single use plastic, STEM education, water management, space policy (think NASA), etc.
What new skills or knowledge would you expect to have at the conclusion of the bootcamp?
Please indicate which of the following science policy opportunities you might be interested in pursuing.
AAAS S&T Policy Fellowships
AAAS CASE Workshop
Commonwealth of Virginia Engineering and Science (COVES) Graduate and Postdoctoral Policy Fellowship
