American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship for Journalists

Description

The American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship for Journalists is a highly selective, nonpartisan program devoted to expanding knowledge and awareness of Congress. The fellowship will be awarded to early and mid-career print and broadcast journalists (including online journalists) who have a professional interest in Congress. Candidates must have a bachelor's degree and two to ten years of professional experience in print or broadcast journalism, which may include or consist of experience in professional online journalism. Freelance journalists are welcome to apply as well as long as they have two to ten years of professional experience as a freelancer. In all cases, applicants should demonstrate a clear and sustained track record of professional achievement in this area. A detailed resume or CV; one sole-authored writing sample; and the names and contact information for three professional references who have agreed to write letters of recommendation for the applicant must be submitted. Applicants will be notified if they are selected for an interview, which will be held around March of the application year. Please visit the fellowship's website or contact the American Political Science Association for more information.
