The White House’s OSTP Student Volunteer Program

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is currently soliciting application for its Student Volunteer Program. Here’s the description:

Serving as an OSTP Student Volunteer provides an opportunity to experience science and technology (S&T) policy firsthand while working closely with senior policymakers on a variety of tasks and projects.

OSTP provides the President with S&T analysis and judgment in regards to major policies, plans, and programs of the Federal government. In addition, the Office leads an interagency effort to develop and implement sound S&T policies and budgets in the Federal enterprise. OSTP works with the private sector to ensure Federal S&T investments contribute to economic prosperity, environmental quality, and security of the Nation.

Student Volunteers are accepted for one of three annual terms (Spring, Summer, or Fall), each lasting no more than 90 days. These positions are without compensation; however, you may be eligible to receive academic credit from your college or university.

If you were a successful applicant, we’d work with you on earning MSU credit.
