SRCD Policy Fellows take different career paths following their Fellowship experience. Approximately 50% of Fellows begin or return to careers in academia following the Fellowship, with strengthened credentials in policy-relevant research and an ability to teach students about the complex issues involved in bridging science and policy. Some Fellows remain in Washington and continue to work in public policy and/or research settings. For example, Fellows have gone on to work at Federal agencies such as the Administration for Children and Families, the Institute for Education Sciences, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Other Fellows or pursue careers with research organizations, or work at organizations that bridge research and policy.
