Attention UC Graduate Students in STEM Fields: Have you ever thought, "There ought to be a law..."?

STEM Solutions in Public Policy Award Competition

UC Center Sacramento announces the inaugural 2019 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Solutions in Public Policy Award Competition. The award will recognize one or more outstanding proposals for new California state legislation from University of California Graduate Students in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics). The winner will receive a $750 research stipend and – should their idea advance through the legislative process – confer with legislators and/or legislative staff in Sacramento and potentially testify before legislative committees.

Submissions will be accepted through Friday December 14, 2018 and should include the following elements:

-An abstract of the proposed law, its purpose, and the underlying science or impact on scientific research (250 words or less)
-"There Ought To Be A Law" application form
-Current CV
Completed applications should be sent to .

Please see the UCCS STEM Solutions Frequently Asked Questions. Additional questions regarding the competition can be addressed to Cindy Simmons, UCCS Associate Director, at .

Competition winners will be selected based primarily on the clarity, feasibility, and originality of their proposal. Please note that if a state legislator decides to author a bill based on your proposal, the legislator will retain ownership of the idea for the duration of the legislative cycle.
