Becas en Washington para ingenieros y cientificos

Escrito por el 3 octubre, 2013 en Becas, Práticas en el Extranjero

OSA y SPIE ofrecen un programa de becas del Congreso para proporcionar a los miembros una oportunidad de aprendizaje sobre las políticas públicas. Los becarios adquieren una perspectiva que realza sus carreras académicas, industriales o de gobierno y la capacidad de la comunidad para comunicarse más eficazmente con el Congreso. La beca es una manera ideal de pasar un año sabático académico o permiso de ausencia de una compañía.

Una oportunidad única
El Arthur H. Guenther Fellow del Congreso trabaja en la oficina de un senador de EE.UU. o el representante o con un comité del Congreso para obtener información de primera mano de las operaciones del Congreso, contribuir al proceso de formulación de políticas, y establecer vínculos entre la ingeniería y las políticas públicas.

Las becas son normalmente de un año, pasando de septiembre hasta el mes de agosto. La Guenther Fellow 2014-2015 se unirá a más de dos docenas de científicos e ingenieros a principios de septiembre de 2014 para un programa intensivo de orientación sobre los poderes legislativo y ejecutivo. Este programa está organizado por la Asociación Americana para el Avance de la Ciencia (AAAS), que también ofrece programas educativos y colegial para el becario durante todo el año. Después de las entrevistas en el Capitolio, los becarios podràn elegir una oficina del Congreso donde desean trabajar. Se espera que los becarios sepan manejar diversas tareas, tanto técnicos como no técnicos.
