Aspen Tech Policy Hub Launches Inaugural Fellowship Program

New West Coast Initiative from the Aspen Institute Will Engage Technologists in Policymaking

Contact: Jon Purves Senior Media Relations Associate The Aspen Institute | 202.736.2111

The recently formed Aspen Tech Policy Hub is now accepting applications for its inaugural cohort of Incubator Fellows. The San Francisco-based policy incubator, which is part of the Aspen Institute Cybersecurity & Technology Program, seeks to teach tech experts about the policy process and help them to formulate and advance solutions that address society’s problems.

The program is the first to use the model of a startup incubator, such as Y Combinator or 500 Startups, to train technologists to better engage in policymaking. The ultimate objective is to build bridges between Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley, with policymakers that better understand today’s technologies and challenges, and technologists who recognize the important role of public policy.

Incubator Fellows will be in residence full time from June to mid-August 2019. During their residence, fellows will produce at least one practical policy output—for instance, mock legislation, toolkits for policymakers, white papers, op-eds, or an app—and will ‘exit’ the incubator by presenting their ideas to a stakeholder with decision-making authority over that issue. The Hub is seeking applicants with significant professional experience with technology, and fellows will publicly present their proposals in the fall of 2019 at events in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

More information about the fellowship and the link to apply is available here:

About the Application Process: The window to apply runs until midnight PST on Wednesday, February 27. Decisions will be announced in May, and Incubator Fellows will then start their residence at the Hub in June.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is currently seeking summer interns for the Direct Hire Authority (DHA) Summer Intern Program which is an 11 week paid internship targeting underrepresented groups. The program utilizes several partners to select and onboard our summer interns.  Please keep in mind students are encouraged to apply to most if not all of these vendors to increase their odds of being selected.

DHA Internship Requirements:

  • Current collegiate students and recent graduates (within 2 years of graduation date) 
  • Must be at least 17 years of age 
  • Must be a U.S. citizen 
  • Summer internship only (June-August) 


 How does the DHA Program work? 
The purpose of the DHA internship is to diversify the BLM. The DHA is a tool to assist the bureau, by using nonprofit organizations that focus on underrepresented groups, to fill positions throughout BLM. By having this DHA Appointment, students can be placed non competitively, into a full time, permanent position, with the BLM. The DHA Appointment is good for up to 2 years from the intern’s graduation date. 
The Office of Recruitment and Retention (ORRP), receives projects from all over the BLM. These projects are the 11-week summer internships that students will apply for through one of the partner organizations listed above.
