The mission of IEEE-USA's Government Fellows Committee is to develop and maintain an effective government fellowship program to utilize the knowledge and expertise of IEEE's U.S. members to provide timely advice and assistance to the U.S. government, and to assist the education of the IEEE's U.S. membership and the public on technology matters relating to public policy. The committee reports to the IEEE-USA Board of Directors through the IEEE-USA Vice President of Government Relations.


The IEEE-USA President appoints six (6) regular US-based IEEE members to serve individual three (3) year terms. Additionally, representatives of the US Department of State and the US Agency for International Development participate in the selection and interviews of the executive branch fellows.
