American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship for Political Scientists

Description

The American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship for Political Scientists is a highly selective, nonpartisan program devoted to expanding knowledge and awareness of Congress. The fellowship will be awarded to Political Science fellows who have completed a PhD in the last 15 years or will have defended a dissertation in political science by November of the fellowship year. The program is open to scholars in all fields of study within political science who can show a scholarly interest in Congress and policymaking. While a number of fellows each year are specialists in Congress and legislative politics, others bring expertise in foreign policy, education, healthcare, human rights, tax policy, and numerous other areas. 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.
