Policy and decision makers need a better understanding of the sciences. The Ohio Public Interest Fellowship aims to train tomorrow's leaders to advocate for the responsible use of science in the decisions that have an impact on the world around us. 

We recruit students who are hungry to make a real difference and have a hand in shaping science and technology policy in Ohio. Fellows will contribute to assignments on topics like Ohio’s public health, energy, air and space industries, digital equity, innovation, and the environment!
