Do you have what it takes to be an IEEE-USA Government Fellow? Don’t miss what program alumnus Marc Canellas calls “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity“!

Each year, IEEE-USA sponsors three or four government fellowships for qualified U.S. IEEE members. The Fellows — chosen by the IEEE-USA Government Fellows Committee and confirmed by our Board — spend a year living and working in Washington as advisers to the U.S. Congress and to the U.S. Department of State or U.S. Agency for International Development. In other words, for an entire year, you get to be a full-fledged Congressional staffer!

The fellowship program links science, technology and engineering professionals with government, and provides a mechanism for IEEE’s U.S. members to learn firsthand about the public policy process while imparting their knowledge and experience to policymakers.

IEEE-USA maintains its Fellows program as part of its mission to serve the public good, and as an educational program for our members. Fellows do not provide any services to IEEE-USA, other than periodic reports designed to educate other engineers about the fellowship experience.

The deadline to apply for a 2021-2022 fellowship is Monday, 14 December 2020. For more information or to apply, visit the IEEE-USA Government Fellowship website today!
