Science Policy x Equity (SPxE) Accelerator
The Day One Project’s “Science Policy x Equity (SPxE)” accelerator is designed to break that cycle. Hosted by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) and Next100, the SPxE accelerator merges these organizations’ respective missions: to advance science, technology, and innovation to deliver dramatic progress on a broad suite of issues, and to change the face and future of policy to build a more inclusive, just, and democratic America.
The SPxE accelerator will provide training and support to individuals who have compelling ideas for policy change at the federal level but lack opportunities to develop their ideas and speak directly to public officials. Participants will also receive a $1,500 stipend upon successful completion of the program. The SPxE accelerator is a virtual, part-time, nine-week opportunity that will run from February 13–April 16, 2023. The accelerator is open to anyone who identifies as being from an community underrepresented in public policy (see FAQ for more information on eligibility) and has an idea aligned with either of two themes: Climate policy and equity and health policy and equity. The 2023 application window closes on January 16, 2023.
