POLICY ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
The Stanford Woods Institute’s Washington, D.C. office connects Stanford experts and environmental research to the policy community. The D.C. office introduces Stanford scholars to policymakers, disseminates research to key policy communities, and positions Stanford scholars to serve as trusted science resources on a wide-range of environment and sustainability topics.
The office is here to serve as a resource to all Woods-affiliated faculty and researchers, and specifically facilitates Faculty Visits, Seminars or Uncommon Dialogues and D.C. Fellowships as described below.
Eligibility: Programs are open to Woods senior fellows, fellows and affiliates
Faculty visits (short term; 1-2 days in D.C.)
Purpose: To assist faculty who wish to connect with policy- and decision-makers in D.C. to inform them about new research findings, provide expert advice on a pressing policy matter, or build and establish important stakeholder networks.
Available Resources: Funding for travel assistance; assistance organizing meetings and small briefings with key policymakers and stakeholders.
How to Apply: Visits are available throughout the academic year. Interested faculty members should contact Lea Rosenbohm at email@example.com.
Seminars or Uncommon Dialogues
Purpose: To enable faculty to organize and host conferences in D.C. on policy-relevant environmental topics that will benefit from discussion and debate among researchers and policy experts.
Available Resources: Travel and conference expenses covered for Woods scholars and participants (on as-needed basis); assistance in all aspects of conference organization, including identifying and inviting participants, preparing agenda and other conference materials, securing location, etc.
Requirement: The topic of the Uncommon Dialogue must have the potential to produce solutions to a major global environmental challenge and must address an issue within the Woods core focal area or a cross-cutting issues relevant to one or more Woods priorities;

NEW!!! – Policy Fellowship (1 week visit)
Purpose: To allow faculty to further their research and outreach through one-week visits to D.C. A fellowship could be undertaken to: disseminate new research results or findings from a new paper; help formulate a new research project and develop a network of scholars and policymakers interested in collaboration; work with D.C. policy makers and experts on a current research project; or develop a network of policymakers and government funders who are supportive of a broader, longer-term research program.
Available Resources: Fellowships cover all travel, hotel and meal expenses; office space provided at the Stanford Woods Institute offices with Resources for the Future; assistance organizing meetings and small briefings with key stakeholders, including roundtable discussion with RFF Senior Fellows; honorarium of $2,000.
Requirement: The Fellowship must address an issue within a Woods core focal area or a cross-cutting issue relevant to one or more Woods’ priorities.
