Congressional Fellowship Program
Founded in 1953, the APSA Congressional Fellowship Program is the nation's oldest and most prestigious congressional fellowship. More than fifty years later, the program remains devoted to its original objective of expanding knowledge and awareness of Congress.
For nine months, select political scientists, journalists, doctors, federal executives and international scholars gain a "hands on" understanding of the legislative process through a comprehensive orientation and by serving on congressional staffs. Through this unique opportunity, the Association enhances public understanding of policy-making and improves the quality of scholarship, teaching and reporting on American national politics.
