Dean JB Holston and Senior Associate Dean Haluk Ogmen jumped at the opportunity to include a Fellow from the Ritchie School in this summer’s Colorado Science and Engineering Fellowship program.

The Colorado Science and Engineering Fellowship is designed to give policy making experience to undergraduate and graduate students with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Throughout the session, each fellow will conduct his/her own policy research project in addition to learning more about STEM policy through seminars and industry site visits. Fellows will work with Colorado State Representatives Chris Hansen and Bob Rankin.

The upcoming session will take place from June-September 2018, for which 12-15 fellows will be chosen. Fellows will be given a $4000 stipend to cover cost of living in the Denver Metro Area and travel.

One Fellow will be selected from the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science to dive into this unique and immersive program.
