Posted on Dec 27, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Early and mid-career journalists who are interested in American national politics can apply for this fellowship.

The American Political Science Association (APSA) is accepting applications for its 2022-2023 Congressional Fellowship Program. The fellowship is a highly selective, nonpartisan program devoted to expanding knowledge and awareness of Congress.

The nine-month program begins each November with an intensive one-month introduction to Congress taught by leading experts in the field.

After orientation, fellows work in placements of their choosing and participate in ongoing seminars and enrichment programs. 

Recipients of the APSA Congressional Fellowship will receive a stipend of US$57,000.

The application deadline is Jan. 14, 2022.
