Grant of the Week: Congressional Fellowship for Political Scientists

Grant recipients will "gain 'hands on' understanding of the legislative process by serving on congressional staffs. With this unique program the Association aims to contribute to the public understanding of policy-making and improve the quality of scholarship, teaching and reporting on American national politics" (http://www.apsanet.org/content_24889.cfm).

"The purpose of this fellowship is to give early- to mid-career political scientists an opportunity to learn more about Congress and the legislative process through direct participation. A comprehensive orientation begins each year in November. Office assignments as full-time legislative aides in the House of Representatives and/or Senate run from December to August. Fellows receive a stipend of $38,000, plus a small travel allowance" (http://www.apsanet.org/content_3540.cfm).
