State executive branch agencies often have insufficient resources (staff, time, funding) to analyze large data sets relevant to government program operation. MOST Executive Policy Fellows assist state agencies with incorporating data management, analysis, visualization, and integration practices to improve program design and implementation according to agency priorities.
Executive Policy Fellows also have opportunities to build policy-relevant skills by participating in professional development activities hosted by MOST and by contributing additional capacity to team projects as appropriate.
For more information about the fellowship programs, read the position description, visit the MOST Policy Fellows page, or watch our informational webinars.
