This program is designed for NSPN Members who have previously developed a policy idea as part of another program to help them take their idea to the next level, building real connections and speaking with stakeholders and lawmakers to facilitate real policy change.


This program is open to NSPN Members who have participated in any of the following programs: NSPN's Annual Writing Competition, Science Policy Scholars-In-Residence (SPSR), or Science Policy Exchange and Learning (SciDEAL). If you are unsure about your membership status you can login to your NSPN Member Portal at scipolnetwork.org/member-portal or email contact@scipolnetwork.org with any questions.
