It's all about the future
Emerging Public Policy Leadership Award
Recognizing student leadership in science policy to ensure a bright future for biology.
About the Award
AIBS established the Emerging Public Policy Leadership Award (EPPLA) to engage scientists in the public policy process. The award recognizes graduate students in the biological sciences who are demonstrating an interest and aptitude for working at the intersection of science and policy.
EPPLA recipients receive an expense paid trip to Washington, DC to participate in meetings with their congressional delegation, communications and policy training, a one-year subscription to BioScience, and a copy of Communicating Science: A Primer for Working with the Media.
