MOST Policy Initiative offers opportunities for scientists, engineers and other outstanding scholars to gain first-hand experience in science policy at the state-level.
MOST offers two distinct fellowship programs: the Legislative Policy Fellowship and the Executive Policy Fellowship. For more information about each of these programs, visit the MOST Policy Fellows page or watch our informational webinars.
We are looking to expand our team with motivated individuals who are committed to public service and eager to take on new challenges. Put your knowledge and skills to the test to advance evidence-based policymaking in Missouri and to help tackle some of society's most pressing questions.
