IEEE-USA 2013-14 Government Fellowships
Each year, IEEE-USA sponsors qualified IEEE members to serve as government fellows. The fellows spend a year in Washington, serving as advisers to the U.S. Congress (Congressional Fellow) or key U.S. Department of State (Engineering and Diplomacy Fellow) decision-makers. IEEE-USA’s Government Fellowships link engineers with government, providing a mechanism for IEEE-USA members to learn firsthand about the public policy process through personal involvement. The Fellows serve one year terms from September 1st to August 31st.
- The congressional fellowship consists of an appointment to the personal staff of a U.S. Senator or Congressman or to the professional staff of a Congressional Committee.
