GIS has come a long way! It has been 25 years since the first AWRA GIS & Water Resources Conference and the very term "GIS" doesn't mean the same thing as it did back then.

Congressional Science Fellows spend a year working as a staff member for a Member of Congress or congressional committee.
The purpose of the program is threefold:
OSA, along with co-sponsors SPIE and the Materials Research Society (MRS), hosts two Congressional Fellows each year. Congressional Fellowships are designed to provide a unique public policy learning experience, demonstrate the value of science-government interaction and bring technical backgrounds and external perspectives to the decision-making process in U.S. Congress.
The SPSSI James Marshall Public Policy Fellowship trains early career scientists to 1) contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge about social issues in the formation of public policy at the federal level; 2) educate the scientific community about how research can contribute to the development of public policy; and 3) establish a more effective liaison between social scientists and
