Prácticas en política científica (USA)

We’re pleased to announce that applications are open for the Duke Science Policy Summer Institute!

This writing-intensive 10-week program at Duke University (May 29 – August 3, 2018) will give participants a grounding in how to read, write, and understand science policy.

During our 4-week curriculum, participants will learn the basics of Science Communication, U.S. Civics, Finance & U.S. Markets, Writing for a Policy Audience (Briefs, Memos & Analyses), and Professional Ethics in Science Policy. Over the four weeks, participants will also gain hands-on experience by writing and publishing policy briefs, drafting proposed legislation, and meeting with members of the North Carolina legislature.

The optional 6-week practicum extension to the program will allow participants to create policy portfolios by working in the SciPol office to produce policy briefs, memos and legislation for local and national clients at the nexus of science and policy.

The program fee is $1,500 and includes all books and course materials, but does not include housing, meals, or travel to North Carolina. Scholarships are available on a need-based, limited basis, but participants are encouraged to seek external sponsorship & support. For details, email
